you should put try/catch in your code to catch the error.. here is an example..
BEGIN TRY
    SELECT 2+'A'
END TRY
BEGIN CATCH
    SELECT ERROR_NUMBER() AS ErrorNumber,ERROR_SEVERITY() AS ErrorSeverity,ERROR_STATE() as ErrorState,ERROR_PROCEDURE() as ErrorProcedure,
        ERROR_LINE() as ErrorLine,ERROR_MESSAGE() as ErrorMessage;
END CATCH

ERROR_MESSAGE() is the key which will tell you what the problem is..

if you try your code in several segments of the proc, it may help you to isolate the area where it is failing.

another option is to manually run each segment of the proc by passing the parameters.. this will be manual troubleshooting..
