I am having problems solving this system of non-linear equations in Matlab and Mathematica.a,b,c,d,e,fare all independent variables.

In Matlab I use fsolve() and get one solution, in Mathematica I use NSolve[] and get another totally different solution. Mathematica also reports this error: "NSolve::infsolns: Infinite solution set has dimension at least 1."

What is the problem here? Is it that there is no unique solution to this set of equations?
