The message explains why it is not possible to do this with the present design: the design is unconnected. The present design looks like: ND ---> NU ND <--- NU TD ---> TU TD <--- TU so there is no path connecting any N with any T. To estimate the interaction you will also need hybs like Nx ---> Ty (and/or vice versa), where x and y are D and/or U. Then you can use limma/limmaGUI to estimate the difference you are interested in.
