I don't think you want to edit pdf in Emacs: the file contents are not
human readable, and Emacs doesn't provide features to allow graphical
editing like those pdf editors (at least not built in).

epub files can contain human readable parts like html, however.

What I had written:

was only happening because I was trying around how to provoke the
reported error.
