It can be because of different plug-ins?

Looks like duff data in the source Confluence.

Is it the same version of Confluence as the target?  And has it been modified in some way?

I tried on the same version and on the newest. 

You're going to need to do some digging through the source Confluence to find out where that bad data is being stored and fix or rmeove it.

How can I find out? This confluence error or XML or DB?

There's no way of knowing - you need to find the error and the broken data before you can do much about it.  Try searching the source Confluence for distinctive words in the data it is reporting as broken
