Problem converting de-drm'd MOBI book to EPUB on Calibre

Hi,
I downloaded four books today to my Kindle for Mac, and imported them into Calibre. Three converted happily from MOBI to EPUB, one didn't.
DeDRM (version 3.0) says the book isn't incrypted, but I can't get it to convert. Here's the error message (new at this, so not sure if this gives enough information? or too much?)
Any help appreciated, can't see why this book is different to the others...

Thanks!

Deirde

Your version of calibre is very old. Upgrade to the latest (0.8.30) and then try your conversion.

Thanks Kovid, that worked perfectly.
You're a very patient man!
And Calibre is a wonderful application, I'd be lost without it.

Best wishes,

Deirdre
