Calibre Friday the 13th issues ?

OK, I was an idiot, but I got a message to upgrade Calibre when I booted it up, and I wasn't thinking that it was Friday the 13th. Now it won't convert my new book to ePub at all, and it isn't doing much of a job in Mobi either. Anyone else having this issue? Help! I published a beautiful book just two weeks ago, so why did I upgrade? I'm weeping. Hair tearing. Please tell me I can fix this...and how.

    Lesson learned...lay low on Friday the 13th.

    I got that message to upgrade and clicked OK; but then a window came up labeled "DANGEROUS WEBSITE" (probably originated by my Trend Micro anti-virus software) so I immediately closed it and did not attempt to proceed. I did go ahead and convert four books for a client using the older existing Calibre version--no snags whatsoever.

    Oh gosh, I thought we all learned that lesson in 1985 but for some reason...I just forgot. I'm going to try in a minute and see if it's fixed now. Pray for me.
