The file you were trying to read was obviously not encoded in UTF-8,
since you got a decode error.
So the first question you should ask is:
Is it supposed to be encoded in UTF-8 (and just corrupted) or is in
supposed to be encoded in something else (e.g. iso-8859-1 or win-1252)?
If it is supposed to be in UTF-8 but may contain errors, ignoring errors
may be reasonable.
If is supposed to be something else, determine what that "something
else" actually is, and use that.
