The reason for the error "Failed to convert command to 8-bit encoding» («Failed to convert command to 8 bit charset») Usually is the use of national alphabets (for example, Cyrillic) or some special characters in the names of files and directories. The error can be observed after transferring files between devices on macOS and devices on Windows. To avoid such problems, it is recommended to use only the Latin alphabet and standard characters in the names of files and directories, which will be displayed the same in all encodings.

If you face this kind of problem, try enable forced UTF-8 for filenames and check for the problem.

Alternatively, you can try uploading the necessary files to the hosting as an archive and unpack it using the file manager. Then, if necessary, you can try convert file name encoding via console.
