I think the definitions are reversed for false positive / negative:
"False positives (not identifying existing errors) and false negatives (incorrectly reporting errors)."

False positive= A positive test result in a subject that does not possess the attribute for which the test is being conducted. 

This means an error is reported when none exists.
