your LaTeX file still has \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}, it
seems. otherwise you shouldn't see messages "Unicode char ...".

you should send us the LaTeX source file (preferably minimal) which
exhibits the problem, not just the error message.

(and, texlive at tug.org is not the best place to report such errors - they
should better be directed e.g. to texhax at tug.org).
