What does "Some of the geometry intersects itself or is degenerate" mean

I am new to OnShape. I have a .dwg file exported from Illustrator that OnShape is having trouble with. Part of the file works and part doesn't. I've been trying different things but nothing helps. Even if I bring it in as two different files, the one that works is good but the one that doesn't gives me the above error. I've checked for grouping, non-continuous lines, fill, non fill, etc., etc., etc. 
Attached is the .ai file. The "r" in the logo works. The "m" gives me the error above.

    Not sure about the errors, but I don't think the files have attached.  Perhaps you could share a public link to the document with the two files in?
