You need to reduce the superannuation figure by 0.00000000001 or increase it by 0.00999999999 to get back to TWO decimal places.
To do this create a pay run, choose your employee (I only had one employee in my pay run. If you have more than one employee, you probably need to do this for each of them) and enter the pay run as:
Gross pay $0, PAYG Tax $0 Superannuation $-0.00000000001
When you hit save the large decimal will show up with only 2 decimal places.
This should lodge correctly.  When I did it, I started with 5529.00000000001 and entered the wrong number of decimal places so it declined again and I got a new error message with the number 5528.99999999991. I did the same thing again but with Superannuation $+0.0000000009 This time it submitted correctly.  I then entered the payrun with the correct Wages, Tax & Superannuation (No decimals at all in superannuation just in case !!) and submitted it and it lodged correctly. Hope this helps.error was 5529.00000000001.  I entered a payrun with Wages $0, Tax $0, Superannuation $-0.00000000001.  The next error message had the number 5528.99999999991 I entered a payrun with Wages $0, Tax $0, Superannuation $0.00000000009 and it lodged correctly.  I then entered the payrun with the correct Wages,Tax & Superannuation (No decimals in super just in case !!) and it lodged correctly.  Hope this helps.
