It means your uuencoded file is incomplete. It's probably posted in multiple
parts. Look at the end of the file. If there's no "end" statement, I'm right.

If you have the whole file, chances are that trailing spaces got stripped
and the single space that is supposed to be on the line above "end" was
removed, leaving just an empty line instead.  uudecode exits when it
sees an empty line, not realizing that the "end" directive it was hoping
for is just one line away.  uudecode might also be complaining about an
earlier line that should have ended in one or more trailing spaces but
had lost them.

Some versions of uuencode use the accent grave (`) instead of the space
for that reason.
