Problem converting an Ebook

Hi folks,

I have the latext version of caliber (6.16) and I am having a problem converting an .lit ebook to .epub. The book is Exiles at the well of souls by Jack Chalker. Published by Baen. When I run it through caliber to convert, I get the following error:

ERROR: Conversion Error: <b>Failed</b>: Convert book 1 of 1 (Exiles at the Well of Souls)

I have no clue as to what the program is telling me. Can someone please enlighten me, and if there is a way to successfully convert the book, please tell me.

Thanks.
