    The issue got fixed. I should be kicking ,myself.

    Solution: the xml file was downloaded on windows, the installation was on linux. The size of the XML changed when i uploaded from windows to linux.

    Thanks Mirra, for showing interest in replying to my post

    Hello Sebastian

    The error message is suggesting this xml file "MP_Stack_1000070121_20160812_.xml" could be corrupted or not readable.

    Try to regenerate it again from MP webiste.

    Best Regards
