SHOW ERRORS

This statement shows error(s) from previously executed statements. The error buffer is cleared as soon as a statement executes successfully. In which case, SHOW ERRORS will return an empty set.

The behavior of which statements generate errors vs. warnings is highly influenced by the current sql_mode.
