This is not a MWE. 

Remove EVERYTHING (packages, layouts) from the file (and preamble) which
does not cause the error. Or construct a virgin file, without anything 
other than a line or two of text, add the paper format and the image. 
If that works out add one modification, package at the time and 
regenerate the PDF.

That often helps me finding the cause :-)-O
