Ajay - without seeing all of your code it will be challenging to understand what is going wrong. Have you perhaps, in your GUI, created a variable named ucontrol or perhaps you've created your own function named uocontrol? The error message is telling you that too many input parameters are being passed into uicontrol (at the line where it is trying to create the OK button).
At the command line, try typing
which uicontrol -all
What is returned from this command? Also, again at the command line, try to create a simple message box as
msgbox('error message', 'Hello', 'error')
Does this work? If not, what is the full error message.
Also, what is the report in the following line of code? A string or a cell array of strings?
h = errordlg(e.getReport(), getDialogTitle());

function varargout = raj(varargin)
% RAJ MATLAB code for raj.fig
% RAJ, by itself, creates a new RAJ or raises the existing
% singleton*.
% H = RAJ returns the handle to a new RAJ or the handle to
% the existing singleton*.
% RAJ('CALLBACK',hObject,eventData,handles,...) calls the local
% function named CALLBACK in RAJ.M with the given input arguments.
% RAJ('Property','Value',...) creates a new RAJ or raises the
% existing singleton*. Starting from the left, property value pairs are
% applied to the GUI before raj_OpeningFcn gets called. An
% unrecognized property name or invalid value makes property application
% stop. All inputs are passed to raj_OpeningFcn via varargin.
% *See GUI Options on GUIDE's Tools menu. Choose "GUI allows only one
% instance to run (singleton)".
% Edit the above text to modify the response to help raj

"Error using uicontrol"
I don't a reference to uicontrol anywhere in the code you shared.
Is msgbox() the name of a file or are you using Matlab's builtin function msgbox()?

Ajay - look closely at the results from which uicontrol --all:
built-in ...... % shadowed
So you have written your own (?) uicontrol function that is shadowing the built-in one. Please remove the file C:\Users\ajayr\Documents\MATLAB\uicontrol.m and try running your code again. (You will probably want to restart MATLAB after removing the file.)
