[R] what does it mean when "lm.gls" says that the weight matrix has wrong dimension?

If first fit my data column V1 to column V2 using normal "lm" fitting,

call it "fit1",

then I used "acf(fit1$residuals, type='cov', 40) " function to obtain the autocovariance of the residuals,

and then constructed a autocovariance matrix, I chose it to be 40x40.

Call this autocovariance matrix B,

I then use the following "lm.gls" function to fit using the above weight matrix:

But what's wrong with my weight matrix?

> fit8=lm.gls(V1~V2, data=data1, W=B, inverse=TRUE);
Error in lm.gls(V1 ~ V2, data = data1, W = B, inverse = TRUE) :

        dim(W) is not correct
