If a file could not be parsed or opened, it usually means that file is either missing or corrupted in some way. You might have to reinstall. If this installation was from a disk, you might have to re-download the ISO and burn it again. Or you could first check the md5sum of the downloaded ISO and see if it matches the correct md5sum value for your ISO.
