You need to confirm the image you are trying to import meets the VM/IE pre-requisites:

You will see that Debian 8.0.0 is supported, however, no other version of Debian 8 is supported. Therefore, please make sure that the OS version of the VM you are trying to import is Debian 8.0.0.

Next, please make sure the volume types of the VM you are trying to import are MBR-partitioned volumes that are formatted using the ext2, ext3, ext4, Btrfs, JFS, or XFS file system. Btrfs subvolumes are not supported. GUID Partition Table (GPT) partitioned volumes are not supported. Additionally, please also check Limitations of VM Import/Export service: Furthermore, if the task is failing due to any of the conditions not being met above, you can look at AWS Application Migration Service. AWS Application Migration Service (MGN) is a highly automated lift-and-shift (rehost) solution that simplifies, expedites, and reduces the cost of migrating applications to AWS. It enables companies to lift-and-shift a large number of physical, virtual, or cloud servers without compatibility issues, performance disruption, or long cutover windows.
