It's probably easier to delete the content from the DP (Admin, DP, content tab) and then distributed fresh. Content library explorer has the option to redistribute if you right-click if you haven't tried it already.

Make sure the source path is correct AND that no-one has changed any files since you distributed first time.

Validation and Re-distribution has done from the console as well as content library explorer tool. Still 2 packages are shows invalid. These 2 packages are update packages  sizes are more than 10GB, do you think size is matters?

Right. No size doesn't matter. I've seen and deployed one package (Adobe Creative Suite) and it's not been a problem. There's always the logs to peruse. I will be back to tell you which one...

Look at
• Distmgr.log - Records package creation, compression, delta replication, and information updates.

use CMtrace to save your sanity.

If it says invalid is there an error code?

Looking at the logs is often the only way to understand issues.
