You're trying to import data for a user who you have not created.  The error in your log below tells you which one - create that user and try again.

com.atlassian.confluence.rpc.RemoteException: No such user with username [bot]

UWC provides a mechanism to import mediawiki pages into confluence whose usernames do not yet exist. This somehow does not seem to work from me and the exception is coming not from UWC but from Confluence.

Could it be that I need to do additional configuration in Confluence to allow page migration of non existent users. Or is this feature not supported in Confluence version I am using(5.9.8)?
