You're looking for an item in a list by its index number.  The number you're using is not a valid list index.  That could be for any number of reasons, and there's not enough information here to say why.

Start by verifying the length (how many items are in the list) of the list.  Then verify the index you're looking for.

The best that can be said about this is that you are attempting to access an Array or List or some object that takes an index but the index you are attempting to use is outside the valid range. For example if you have an array that can be accessed with and index between 0 and 100 the only valid indexes that can be used in any integer between 0 and 100 inclusive, so using an index of -1 or 101 fall outside the valid range and will give the error you are getting.

Please post the code where this error is happening.

Both solutions would be where to look with this error.
