Please use the spoiler tags (eye with red X on advanced edit menu) for long pastes

The last line leads me to believe that your original has a encoding error at position 30866 (into the azw3 source file)

(there may be other errors as well: The div table for SKEL0000000004 has incorrect insert positions. Calculating manually. )

Hi,

The actual bug was here:

> Python function terminated unexpectedly: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xa0 in position 30866: invalid start byte

I think this is a bug already fixed in very recent versions of calibre. Please update to the very latest version of calibre and try again.
