Exclamation Problems adding .epub to calibre Mac OS High Sierra

All has been fine for about a month but now when I try to add .epub files to convert it gives me this error.
Any suggestions on what is wrong? Pdfs can be added with no issues.

calibre, version 3.14.0
WARNING: Errors while adding: There were problems adding some files, click "Show details" for more information

That's not an epub file, its a directory whose name ends with .epub

These are typically created by apple software like ibooks. A bit of googling should find you some scripts to convert these directories back to actual epub files.
