During a normal TCP capture, some TCP frames are captured as RPCAP protocol, with these error details:

    Message type: Error (1)

What's the meaning of this info? Thanks.

It probably means that something on the network sent a packet that looks enough like an RPCAP packet that Wireshark tried to decode it as an RPCAP packet, but that it isn't an RPCAP packet, and Wireshark got confused trying to interpret it as one. Unfortunately, the technique Wireshark uses to determine whether a packet is an RPCAP packet or not are relatively weak and can treat non-RPCAP packets as RPCAP packets.

Try disabling the RPCAP dissector - go to "Enabled Protocols...' In the "Analyze" menu, and turn "RPCAP" off.
