Error -3 message

I performed a search hoping to find an answer for my issue, but was not able locate a previous thread for this error.

On occasion while attempting to use the E-book viewer in calibre to look over an epub I am presented with an error -3 message and do not understand exactly what is occurring to cause the epub to become unviewable in Calibre and unable to be opened for editing in Sigil.

Any assistance would be appreciated as I'm at a loss as to what to do.
Here is the message detail I am presented with currently.

calibre, version 0.8.47
