Hello,
This system of equations contains only four nontrivial equations (the rest being tautologies)
t + a y == t + z
u + v == v + a y
a u + w == w + a z
2
t u y - w y - u x z + v y z == 1
Furthermore, only two of the first three are linearly independent, yielding by inspection u == z == ay. Hence the warning from the solver that not all variables are found. You need to supplement solution 1 with the additional specification y==0.
