This is a known issue with latest Camera Raw update.
thank you for the fast reaction and information!
I hope for two things:
1. ASAP fixing the problem by Adobe
2. The fix/Update repair files still imported/conversed with the problem!

I think the issue is for all DNGs from an X-E2 not just newer ones, so I'm not sure there's anything wrong with the DNGs that needs fixed, just LR needs to be fixed to read them.
Thats not correct. I imported many RAF-files and conversed them to DNG without a problem (last Import was end of May 2016). The next import/conversation 4 weeks later brougt this problems (the X-E2 ist my second camera, most time I use my Canon EOS 60d).
In the 4 weeks happend two things:
1. Firmware-Update by the X-E2 (FW-Version 4.0)
2. LR/PS/ACR-Update to the newest Versions.
Now - what ist the reason? Adobe says at June 10, 2016 "downgrade LR as workaround" - well, I think (but don´t know) the causer is LR/PS/ACR
I should have been more verbose:
You said you wanted Adobe to do two things: 1) fix the problem and 2) repair the files.
My comment was about 2), I don't think Adobe needs to fix any [DNG] files because the DNGs are ok.
I agree with 1) that Adobe does need to fix the bug that prevents the latest .6 updates from reading X-E2 DNGs properly. Since the latest version has a bug reading the DNGs, then rolling back to .5.1 would be the workaround until .6.1 (or whatever hotfix version is called) is released.
It is the newest version of Adobe Camera RAW that is the problem. I also converted all my Fuji X-E2 RAF files to DNG and with LR 2015/6 Dot version 6 and with PS and Bridge with the ACR 9.6 update none of them are visible.
So you need to Roll Back to LR 2015/6-5.1
Look here for the steps and instead of installing the 2015/6-1.1 update install the 5.1 update.
I have the same problem, "file not supported or damaged". It started few weeks ago, before it was ok (PC Windows10).
The X-E2 firmware is not an issue. I was initially using the old 3.01. So I updated to the latest version 4.01. Same problem.
LR is latest version 6.6.
Roll back is not acceptable since I'm paying to have stable functional software. By the way I don't see any official acnowlegdement by Adobe to this annoying bug.
The story of difficulties in dealing with .RAF files is years long and it's a shame that neither Adobe solves the issues nor declares its software not compatible with .RAF files.
All other softwere I'm using, freeware and open sourse, works perfectly with .RAF raw files and even with the same converted in .DNG with adobe DNG converter.
So it's a problem of LR.
How long to have an official answer and the bug fixed?
