Incomplete epub export: documents skipped due to errors

When trying to export an epub file, I get this message: 

Documents : 37 skipped. (Documents not found or received error during export.)

I have a number of documents added to a  new "book." When exporting the ebook, it only exports select documents, not all the documents I added. I formatted these documents using Indesign 2020. However, I just upgraded and am trying to export them with Indesign 2021. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.

I am having the same issue and it's driving me crazy. It doesn't always stop on the same chapter. Sometimes 10 are skipped, sometimes 13. I thought maybe it was memory issues, but I'm fine. Any other insights here?

Is this a Reflowable ePub or a FXL ePub?

Did you use the InDesign Book feature to create the document Tetra?

How many pages and did you modify the print version for use for the ePub version?

That's a long document – is it text heavy?

It's a mix. Mostly text with some photos interspersed

It might be worth buying a month's worth of the epub validator Flightdeck – it's an invaluable resource: https://ebookflightdeck.com

I'm not sure a validator is of any use until an EPUB is generated. 🙂

 

I would try exporting small groups of chapter documents to see if it's the scale of the export, or individually faulty component docs.
