Not without more information.

Can you try and narrow it down to a specific peice of your docbook input 
that is causig the problem. There are three ways of doing this:

- do "forrest run", request the page causing the problem and look in the 
log files for more information (PROJECT_HOME/webapp/WEB-INF/logs

- commenting out chunks of the docbook source until your PDF works then 
reintroduce parts that are not working

- request the FO document and manualy inspect for errors or use a 
validator tool to give more information (to get the fo source request 

A hint: given the error message you provide it looks like either an 
image or a hyperlink is causing the problem.
