I have also had the same error, which apparently includes all Chrome variants. I was able to import the .ics file by using Microsoft Edge (ptui!), so showing no problem with the file. It is Chrome and Chromium variants which are at fault. Can we expect a fix please? Here is a masked content copy of the .ics file…

Same issue here.

Works on other browsers, so ics file is OK.

Having same issue on all calendar imports to Google calendar in Brave. Started about 3 weeks ago. Have had no problems previously. Works fine in other browsers.
