You can then search for "Error" in the report to identify to reason easily.  For example, if it is caused by duplicate component item, you will see the following sample: 

If you confirmed that the duplicate component item exceptions are expected, then you can simply change the flag "3. Allow Duplicate Components?" to "Y" and try again.
