This is technically a different error message, but is what was causing the issue.

string = "The value is one hundred (100)."

# Raises an error 
print("This is 100% of a sentence:\n%s" % string)
# Traceback (most recent call last):
#   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
# TypeError: %o format: an integer is required, not str

# This does not raise an error
print("This is 100%% of a sentence:\n%s" % string)
# This is 100% of a sentence:
# The value is one hundred (100).

TL;DR: Escape the percent symbol (%) with two percent symbols when using string formatting in Python.
