Is there any way we can find out which family the render appereance images missing is connected too? Like if you have lots of families in your project, there is no way of knowing which jpg its refering to. I downloaded most of the families from here, so it could be possible that the render image was missing from the start. But still I would like to find out so I can replace the image with my own.

Try R Button - Options - Rendering - and see the Additional Render Appearance Paths - Are there any there that are incorrectly pathed? You can add a path to the required folder where you saved the texture images ( assuming you did save the texture images somewhere when you downloaded the files originally. If you didn't then you know what to do next time to make it work)Purging your model of redundant families and redundant materials to reduce the number of families/materials you need to review for the next steps.Go to Manage - Materials - Choose the uppermost material, click the Appearance tab. Now slowly go through each material and find the ones that have lost the link to the texture image. It will show up in red. Fix it if you can by replacing it or using the right texture and linking it in. Fixing the material here will transfer the material content into the family in the model and into the family if you open it externally in the family editor.You can also look at the missing texture image names to see if they tell you anything. In yours, it looks like they come from a family containing stone, a chair and a fireplace. Start there to rule out the easy ones.

You could also look at any familys you imported from external sources as those can often cause these problems.Final fix is to use R Button - Save As - Library - Family to export every family to an external folder at once and go through each one starting with the most likely culprits.Good luck.
