It means what is written : your job is terminated because 9 tasks out of 10
exited more than 60s before.

The logic behind the 60 seconds (configurable) is described in the srun man
page. You should look at it closely.

You should also look at the FAQ here https://slurm.schedmd.com/faq.html.

You should set --ntask=1, if I properly guess your goal.
