You run DataPump export/import between two databases with multibyte character sets (for example AL32UTF8). DataPump export was successful.

During import you received errors like:

Processing object type SCHEMA_EXPORT/VIEW/VIEW
ORA-39083: Object type VIEW failed to create with error:
ORA-907: missing right parenthesis
Failing sql is:
ORA-39125: Worker unexpected fatal error in KUPW$WORKER.PUT_DDLS while calling DBMS_METADATA.CONVERT [VIEW:"<owner>"."<view name>"]
ORA-6502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error
LPX-00230: invalid character 32 (U+0020) found in a Name or Nmtoken
ORA-6512: at "SYS.DBMS_SYS_ERROR", line 105 
ORA-6512: at "SYS.KUPW$WORKER", line 6313

The issue is triggered by the multibyte characters comments used in creation statements of views/materialized views reported in the import log.
