Error reading file ‘UNOPENED’ (Errcode: 5 – Input/output error)

If you get this MySQL error “Error reading file ‘UNOPENED’ (Errcode: 5 – Input/output error)” while importing a .sql file into your database via the command line, then chances are your sql file is corrupted, was not exported/downloaded properly. Export the file again & try, it worked for me.
