The method numpy.diff should be given a non negative order argument.

Code to reproduce the exception:

```
import numpy as np
x = np.array([1, 2, 4, 7, 0])
np.diff(x, n=-2)
```

```

ValueError: order must be non-negative but got -2
```

Fixed version of the code:

```
import numpy as np
x = np.array([1, 2, 4, 7, 0])
np.diff(x, n=2)
```
