I'm having the same problem! As soon as I installed the new update, I have conversion errors on all my new books!

turn off the insert metadata as first page conversion feature under structure detection, until I release a fixed build.

Conversion failure

You said "turn off the insert metadata as first page conversion feature under structure detection, until I release a fixed build."

That didn't work for me. None of my books will convert. I tried to convert a new book to rtf, then an old book that I'd converted before, taking the old rtf file out first, and got the same "failed to convert" error.
Tried other formats, and sometimes it would say it converted, but the book wouldn't open. Most times I got the "failed to convert" error.

If you have converted that book before, the settings in effect at that time are used.
There is a "Restore Defaults" button on the conversion screen that needs to be used to make that book use the Latest Defaults.

But it happens with books that I haven't converted before, too. I keep a copy of the original, when I can, and I used a few of those to test.
I temporarily solved my problem. I found an old copy of Calibre (0.8.22), uninstalled the 0.8.27 version and reinstalled 0.8.22 which works like a charm. I think I've learned my lesson, to keep an old copy to hand in case something goes wrong.
I have to say that I really appreciate your work on this program. It's hugely useful. I own a Nook Color, a Kobo and a Kindle Keyboard (I sometimes do demos on ebooks and I've found hands-on is the best way) as well as an old Ipaq 4700 (which still works well and has a 4 inch screen) so the conversion facility is very important to me. Thank you for making it so much easier for the average reader!
(I avoid pdf when I can - it does hinky stuff in the conversion!)

Glad you got a temporary fix, but the new version 0.8.28 as been available for at least 9 hours by now. Also, no need to keep old versions they can all be found on Sourceforge, here.
