manifest and spine issue

i have an ebook (epub) with font embed. all work fine, and my ipad read ebook correctly.
but on calibre, on check error, i have 2 error: manifest and spine are missing on opf file. but i already have on my opf file!
start <manifest> at line 12 and end </manifest> at line 57
start <spine toc="ncx"> at line 58 and end </spine> at line 95

another issue is cover: all ok on my epub, but put on my ipad, ipad don't see cover! (from library page). but when open my ebook i see correct cover image.
and also i have only one cover.xhtml at first place on my xhtml files, but saved book and re-open on calibre i have another cover.xhtml at the end of the list with ! red symbol. delete this file, reopen book i have again same problem....

I suspect there is a parseing error (missing or wrong symbol or punctuation)
in the OPF. Probably above or in Manifest

Validate is NOT supposed to be forgiving of common errors that render engines allow.

after careful analysis on my ebook on opf file is missing </metadata> before manifest section.
add this, all work correctly! no error found.

now i have another little problem: my very stupid ipad don't see cover image on library section.
but cover is normally dislayed when my book is open on ipad...

- try to rename name of book on opf page: the same;
- (re)-mark cover.xhtml as cover: the same;
- on library is dislayed as unknow author... but on opf i have <dc:creator xmlns:ns0="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf" ns0:role="aut">author name</dc:creator>

suggestion?
