I am assuming that possibly your version PDF reader is not up to date as

many factors can prevent a PDF from opening.
Some factors include damage to the PDF, or an out-dated version of Reader or Acrobat. 
Other factors include unrecognisable file types or PDFs created with non-Adobe programs. 
Try the suggestions below as your first troubleshooting steps.
Acrobat Help / Can't open PDF

If it is was working and now got corrupted then it needs to be repaired. There are professional tool available to do PDF repair from PDF Recovery Toolbox. http://www.pdf.recoverytoolbox.com/  

 You can give a try on free version if that file is that important as it all paid versions you need to purchase.

There are many software vendors in the market which provide PDF Recovery tools. And most of them are available with free demo/trial version. Or if you just want to view/read PDF file, you should use a PDF File Viewer tool (freeware). But if you want to recover content from the file, you need a recovery tool. So before you can purchase any such tool, you must download free demo/trial version. By using demo/trial version, you can see what you could recover from the corrupt PDF file before you can actually pay for the software. If you're satisfied with the results, you can purchase the software. 

Refer to this blog post for useful information on PDF Recovery - A Must-have PDF Repair Software to Repair PDF File | N. Sem's Blog

I hope the shared information would be helpful here. 

Thanks and best regards.
