No ,

because Homogeneous systems of linear equations are systems where the constant term in each equations is zero. Therefore, they have the form [A|0], where A is the matrix of coefficients of the variables in the system of equations. Systems of this type always have a solution. There is always the trivial solution where [x1, x2, ..., xn] = [0,0,...0].
