There seems to be some sort of error with your storage drive/SSD. The main reason is a lack of or inefficiently allocated free disk storage room. You can try to make room or change your file system to gain storage room. Alternatively, a virus or a corrupted Drive could cause the problem. If all fails, a system restore or clean installation of your OS could do the job.
I hope this information helps in some way, best of luck!

The question has been asked and answered before. ... type=&tbs=

The error code seems to be somewhat non-specific, it can mean a duplicate VM already exists, or an error in the OVA, and lots of other things that can't be diagnosed remotely.

When asked this question last year I answered thusly: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=96290#p467934, basically unpack the OVA yourself and install the contents manually. Those will not guarantee a working VM, but in that case you will at least get a better idea of where the process fails.
