After this operation, the problems with opening the KML file should be solved forever.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the KML file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
