Error when validating file for import

I have Odoo 8 installed on Ubuntu

I also installed the OpenEducat module.

When attempting to import student data from a .csv file, I get the following:

Unknown error during import: <type 'exceptions.TypeError'>: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'bool' and 'str' 

at row 2

Resolve other errors first

I have the same setup on a WIndows server, which works fine, but need to use Linux in the current environment.
Importing data into other modules, such as Sales, works fine.

Any ideas?

This can happen when your csv file is missing a required column.  For example, if you try to import users, and you don't specify a related partner.

I had the same error importing users using csv file. After uninstalling my custom developed module that changes the res.partner model, the problem disappeared. Hopefully works for you too.
