Have you tried opening and resaving from Photoshop
I haven't yet, it's possible that will work, I just want to see if someone can identify what it is about this photo, because these are uploaded by our users and sent to our design department, so I could stop them from being uploaded (or automatically save them in a correct format) at the time of upload.
If you can resave them on upload that would be the best option.
Try a test and see if just resaving as JPEG works.
If it does then that's the solution. Make sure you select Maximum (12) when saving.

I'm experiencing similar issues with some supplied images. Problem seems to be the use of 'Dropbox' and method of saving the image from dropbox.
Rather than using the dropbox 'Download' button, users are right clicking on the image and 'Save Image as..' this produces the corrupt image when imported into InDesign.
You can open the image in Photoshop and remove the unsupported 'sRGB IEC61966-2-1 black scaled' ICC profile, but the image is a low resolution Preview of the image. Not the full original version obtained by the 'Download' button.
To identify if an image has been saved by the 'Save Image as.. ' method, if you edit in Notepad++ you can find the words 'Dropbox, Inc' within the file as well as a reference to the 'sRGB IEC61966-2-1 black scaled' profile.
Your image '1bb.jpg' does indicate that this is also a 'Save Image as..' - 'Dropbox' version.
Thank you! This was precisely my issue and simply switching to using Dropbox's "download" button solved my problem.
