I had the same issue. I used the salesforce export csv file and at the bottom of the csv it had junk values such as the name of the report and the salesforce copyright info. Just delete.

Sample output at end of the CSV

Regarding your error, please check the below article. https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000206248&type=1 I would suggest trying with Dataloader.io http://dataloader.io/ , it is more reliable than dataloader. Also try, Opening the file in excel, save as new CSV file.( It worked for me for a similar issue)
