What does “Market orders for stock options are blocked due to illiquidity” mean?

"Market orders for stock options are blocked due to illiquidity. Try placing a Limit order."

Market & Stop Loss Market [SL-M] orders are not allowed in stock options due to lack of liquidity- only Limit [LMT] orders & Stop Loss [SL] orders are allowed. Similarly, market orders & SL-M orders aren't allowed in Commodity options.

Bracket Orders & Cover orders are also not allowed in Stock Options & commodity options.
