GMC Sheet Validation issue - Item errors - Invalid data

I'm trying to upload a sheet but keep receiving the message Item errors - Invalid data when processing sheet validation. I'm not able to identify what the issue is just looking at the message. I've tried to change everything in the rows with errors. Any suggestion to help me to overcome the issue?

the optional google-sheet-validation is not required for live processing
and may report issues improperly, or that are not really issues at all.

direct feedback about google's optional validation add-on and
related inaccurate messages, may be sent directly to google.

only live-feed-processing of the data may show such details --
for live-processing, click on the feed-name and then select
fetch-now, by clicking the three-dots, on the far-right of the
file-uploaded-on, or no-feed-ready-yet, message.

also, be certain there is only one, single, primary-feed
registered with google for the target-country and that the
primary-feed is never deleted -- unless a person at google
indicates to do so.

that said, forum-members cannot look into any accounts or submitted data --
forum-members can mainly offer suggestions based on the information posted
here in the public forum.

posting a specific url link to a *read-only* version of the google-sheet
that is being used and possibly screen-captures of the merchant-center's
products-feeds, feed processing, and products-lists pages -- after live
processing has completed -- may allow other forum-members to offer

more specific suggestions.

otherwise, google may be contacted directly.
