With that said, I would first check the URL that you are sending with your form (if any).
If that doesn't work, you will have to trace the code (and your submission) to determine if a proper URL is being generated within the plugin to find the offending code or you are likely to continue getting that error. Or, you could try contacting Gravity Forms which is likely to be a better option because they are the ones who are responsible for writing the code.
