I have got the issue when import the category for specific SKU.

General system exception happened Additional data: URL key for specified store already exists.


This problem happens when you have product and category with the same url key.


  1. Create Category: Energy Products(URL Key:energy-products)
  2. Create Sub Category Category: Stacker 2 Energy Shots(URL Key:stacker-2-energy- shots)
  3. Create Grouped Product: Stacker 2 Energy Shots(URL Key:stacker-2-energy-shots)
  4. Add Product "Stacker 2 Energy Shots" to Category "Energy Products" for example

If above solution would not work for you. Take backup of url_rewrite table, truncate it and run re-indexing and check again
