Nmap, in your case, could not find any port in OPEN state. Best to my memory, it needs at least 1 port in OPEN state and 1 port in CLOSED state to fingerprint the OS.
Check your settings for the box you are running NMap against, make some port available and scan again.
You might need to stop your firewall or allow services to listen on ports.
