If the command line option -verbose is added then the message becomes:

Sometimes the following error is also seen:

If what is in Command Line Generation (grainge.org) does not help, and no one else posts an answer, then I think it might be best to take this one up with Support.

 

See https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/enterprise-support.other.html#robohelp for your support contact options.
