“Errors” or “Sins committed in ignorance” in Hebrews 9:7?

"But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:" (Hebrews 9:7, KJV)

“Error,” as opposed to “sin,” sufficiently conveys the idea of an unintentional wrong. For example, an “error” on an exam is an instance where the student provided the wrong answer due to ignorance or lack of knowledge.
