Perhaps you have a bad copy of that particular log segment file?
The "incorrect checksum" failure is normal in certain circumstances
(eg, where the system crashes partway through writing out a large
WAL record), which is why the code treats it as indicating the end
of WAL.  But in this case it looks more like corrupt data ...
