It is certainly TETRA.
Your BZ is a 2D BZ. You have only ONE kz value, which means all your
"tetrahedra" are actually triangles and this is a highly degenerate
situation. Even worse is SO coupling, because in a non-spinpolarized
calculation all eigenvalues are "doubled", i.e. even more degenerate.
I'm pretty sure you get even errors in the number of electrons. Try
grep ':CHA ' case.scf (mind the blank), or
grep :NEC01 case.scf
In more recent versions of WIEN2k the init_lapw script even warns you,
because it detects a 2D BZ and suggests to switch to TEMP.
Maybe I'll make this automatic in future.
PS: I would expect you have to do a spin-polarized calculation,
otherwise the simulation is unrealistic.

According to other DFT studies a monolayer of MoS2 with zig-zag edges is
metallic and ferromagnetic. However, I do not know if the current system
under study is ferromagnetic. Without SOC the system under study is
metallic: this was done with efmod set to TETRA. I am interested in how
the SOC affects valence band splitting in this system. I will try using
TEMP(S) with the suggested smearing. I do not understand how changing to
TEMP(S) affects the SCF convergence though.
Thanks for the advice!
