Are you trying to upload just one specific image or have you tried with different images? If it's just one image then the file could be corrupt or named with the wrong file extension.
here is error

There's reference to ******* Credits add-on in the error. The problem may be related to that. Try disabling the add-on and seeing if that solves the problem.

Issues such as this are almost always down to incorrect permissions on the data/ directory or subdirectories or files within. You should recursively chmod this directory to 0777 if you're having an issue like this.
