This issue is caused by security related changes in Ghostscript 9.27. Currently you have to use GhostScript 9.26 or below.

I installed ghostscript 9,26 (see attached screenshot)
If I import an EPS file I get still the fatal error Massage.
If I open the PDF Dokument only some fragments are imported.
