ExifTool not working on import

edited February 11 in Troubleshooting
HI! Im trying to import metadata from images using ExifTool ( runing on a ubuntu system). But when i run the import i get  

Errors during import:

Could not read source /var/www/html/providence17/import/mia/unnamed.jpg (format=EXIF).

A normal image import works fine an i get all the metadata in the image file description. But i cant map it using the excel template. Any ide what i am doing wrong?

The Xcell file:

Source CA table.element Group Options Refinery Refinery parameters
Mapping IFD0/ImageDescription
Mapping __filepath__  ca_object_representations    objectRepresentationSplitter {

"objectRepresentationType": "front",

   "attributes": {

       "media": "^__filepath__"
