Validation error message???

I have been trying to validate an epub file of the book I'm working on and I keep on getting the message below. I can't figure out what the problem with the file is. I made the epub in Sigil.

Why is this a Sigil Question? It is a EPUB question.
is that the Author? role ="aut", not who

I made the file in Sigil so I wasn't sure if it was a sigil error or something else.

Did you use the metadata editor (F8) or hand edit the OPF?

Yeah, you put the author's name in the opf:role's value field instead of the dc:creator value field.

The opf:role for the dc:creator property should be "aut".

If you use Sigil's Metadata editor to Add the Author metadata, you only need replace the [Author name here] part. The aut role will be pre-populated already.
