"PDF not Generated- Some of the files are not valid"

Hello. Quick qualifiers:
I am on Bridge V14.0.2 (haven't updated to the most recent release but this has been an issue for me for several versions of Bridge before this one.
Mac Ventura 13.6.3 on a Mac Studio with an M1 Max Chip and 64Gb of Ram.
I've tried a couple of the other solutions I've seen including giving full disk access to Bridge through the Mac security settings, as well as ensuring the files are on my SSD, and it is exportig to my SSD. 
I also completly rebooted my computer and started only Bridge before trying the export.

I reliably get this error message on some file types. The files I am trying to get a PDF image of are themselves PDFS and I have them set to Overprint a "Spot White" Coloured Purple for my RIP Software and the printer we send it to.
I tried removing the spot white colour and just having it CMYK purple overprint just for the PDF as we only use the bridge PDF for viewing by the Print operator.
I also tried just removing the files in question and having just the black file in the top right and it also didn't like that.

Update. I looked at the Black File and it had the "Spot white" in the colour library but no where on the document and Removing it worked. However I don't know why that should be the limiting factor. These are the settings for my "Spot White".

Can you combine them in Acrobat or InDesign?

I am able to place the source files as links or embeds into InDesign zero Issues (I actually made the initials in Indesign however the issue persists if I make it in IL or ID. I can also combine them into multiple pages in Acorbat if that's what you mean?

It sounds like something gone wrong with the pdfs.

It seems to take issue with my Spot Colour Labeled White (values as seen in another comment). As soon as I remove it as a spot from the document it does just fine. However Making a seperate document with the spot colour unassigned is annoying and also nonsensical. Why does it take such offense to the label?
