We need some clarification, Allen.
You say "I used scribus 1.3.8" but the info below says

You will not be able to load a file saved with 1.3.8 into, but 
you can load a file into 1.3.8...

Load your file into Notepad and check the second line of the file, that 
starts with <SCRIBUSUTF8NEW Version="">, which should have the version 
number of the file between the quotes.

Let us know what you find.
