Make sure that you didn't make a single brush over the entire map (instead of a map ceiling, floor and walls).

Here's an example map.

Brushes (blocks) aren't hollow.

...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Use many more than just one. The outside box of your map should consist of 6 brushes (roof, floor and 4 sides). What Mate de Vita was pointing out is that one single brush can not be used as your map's outside box because it is one huge lump of brush, rather that 6 sides.
