If you zipped the html file, and then went to the subdirectory and
zipped the files there (even into the same zip file), the zip file would
then not have the relative relationship info needed. The same failure
would happen if you zipped it all at once, but had the setting to save
the relative path turned off.

Good evening from Japan
Maybe I did ask a similar question before ...
I wrote a book using Writer which I am now trying to upload to Kindle.
The instructions say, I must save the file as html and then create a zip
file from the html file + the images.
"Save as ... html" creates a content file and a whole long list of files
for the images.
However, that did not work. I got an error message and asked for help.
Below a copy the relevant portion of the answer from Amazon.
Since I hate MS Word, I would love to do this with LO.
Is LO NOT capable of producing the necessary html file as Word does?
What trick is required, apart from "save as html file", to make this work?
partial copy of the answer from Amazon:
I reviewed the ZIP folder you've uploaded for your title, and found that
you've manually included the HTML file and images separately.
The images aren't correctly referenced in the ZIP folder, which is why
they aren't appearing when converted to Kindle format.
I see that you've created the HTML file in LibreOffice. If you have MS
Word, you can save your document in LibreOffice as a DOC file and open
it in Word to convert it to HTML.
When you save your Word file as HTML (Web page, filtered), a separate
HTML file and a separate folder containing all your images will be
automatically created at the same location in your computer.
I would contact Amazon technical support and ask what is the problem. It
appears that they want the images in the same directory as the html
files. If so, it is relatively easy to correct the html file references
to the images, if a bit tedious, and move the images into the same
folder. LO actual exports html in the preferred mode with the images
stored in separate folder.
