Question ePub fails to convert

I have an ePub file that won't convert - I can open it up and edit it in Calibre's editor, view it, no problem, but it won't convert to any format. I just get a Failed: Convert book 1 of 1 message.

Here's the conversion log;

Did you VALIDATE while it was in the editor? (the ladybug icon)
(and correct RED flagged errors)

For some reason I didn't get email alerts about the responses here, but I did end up trying the ladybug (for the first time) and following its instructions has done the trick, so thank you!
