    I believe that I see the issue. On the Extensions entry of each of your Upload Fields, it appears that you have added an accidental space before the jpg extension, so the extension is interpreted as ". jpg" instead of ".jpg". Please try changing it for every one of your Upload Fields so have only a single space.

    The entry should be only:

    pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, csv, txt, rtf, jpg, jpeg, png, gif

    Please let us know if removing that one excess blank space character from your Upload fields' allowed Extensions fixes the issue.
