This was a read command that failed. Request sense information shows a
sense key of 0x08 which is a "Blank check". This sense key indicates
either a blank medium found or another error at EOD. ASC/ASCQ of
0x14/0x03 say "End-Of-Data not found". This indicates something wrong
with the tape or maybe the drive needs cleaning. Do you get this error
with more than one tape?

This was a "Read Block Limits" command which the drive claimed it does
not recognize. "Read Block Limits" is a mandatory command for SCSI
sequential access devices which is why "st" is issuing this command. The
tape drive you have is not SCSI, so the manufacturer chose not to
implement this command. The driver may still be able to work after "Read
Block Limits" fails, but I have not read enough code to be sure.
