In this paper, we main consider the non-existence of solutions
 $u$
by approximation to the following quasilinear elliptic problem with principal part having degenerate coercivity:
 \begin{align*} \left \{ \begin{array}{rl} -\text{div}\left(\frac{|\nabla u|^{p-2}\nabla u}{(1+|u|)^{(p-1)\theta}}\right)+|u|^{q-1}u = \lambda, \; &x\in\Omega, \\ u = 0, \; &x\in\partial\Omega, \end{array} \right. \end{align*}
provided
 \begin{align*} q>\frac{r(p-1)[1+\theta(p-1)]}{r-p}, \end{align*}
where
 $\Omega$
is a bounded smooth subset of
 $\mathbb{R}^N(N>2)$
,
 $1 , $ q>1 $, $ 0\leq\theta<1 $, $ \lambda $is a measure which is concentrated on a set with zero $ r $capacity $ (p
