I will bite!
How did you know where the error message picture was?

That screen shot say the Originating file is PDF
The rest, I do not know much about other than it is complaining about invalid for UTF-8 encoding in a certain position.
Damaged? DRM?

That error indicates a temp file dir that has on ascii characters. Try setting the CALIBRE_TEMP_DIR environment variable to a simple directory like c:\temp
