You'll need to remove the broken data - my guess is that you were running the source JIRA with a MySQL backend.  See https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/removing-invalid-characters-from-xml-backups-12079.html for the easiest fix.

Thanks! I was able to resolve this issue.

Rafael - did you use the instructions from Nic or did you resolve it some other way?
