  • I imagine you downloaded the export file more than once and did more than one attempt to import… just in case…

    Open the exported XML file in a good text/code editor.
    Search for the images names, see if the URL is ok. Paste it in the browser to check.

    The failing tag seems more difficult. Search for wp:tag_slug and look for weird characters.
