Determining which files were not imported during a bulk import

I'm currently in the process of doing a bulk import of a variety of ebooks to the calibre library through the linux terminal and I've noticed that there are a few files that just don't import for one reason or another. Is there any way to determine the filenames of the books that weren't imported properly?

Unfortunately, because I'm doing this through the linux command line the only error message that I get does not include the file name. Instead I get something like this

Code:
Backing up metadata
Notifying calibre of the change
Error: May not be a PDF file (continuing anyway)
Error: PDF file is damaged - attempting to reconstruct xref table...
Error: Couldn't find trailer dictionary
Error: Couldn't read xref table
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages/calibre/customize/ui.py", line 312, in get_file_type_metadata
  File "site-packages/calibre/customize/builtins.py", line 347, in get_metadata
  File "site-packages/calibre/ebooks/metadata/pdf.py", line 25, in get_metadata
RuntimeError: Failed to open PDF file with error code: 3
And considering that this folder contains a very large number of ebooks, it would be quite hard to go through and check each file manually.

That error just means metadata could not be read from the file, it was still imported.
