Adding to Prabhat alternatives, you can use --force to the mysqldump command
to ignore the errors and continue taking backup.
Regarding the error, we need to check whether the table is present or not
and the engine type specifically.

correct. mysqldump by default has --lock-tables enabled, which means it
tries to lock all tables to be dumped before starting the dump. And doing
LOCK TABLES t1, t2, ... for really big number of tables will inevitably
exhaust all available file descriptors, as LOCK needs all tables to be
Workarounds: --skip-lock-tables will disable such a locking completely.
Alternatively, --lock-all-tables will make mysqldump to use FLUSH TABLES
WITH READ LOCK which locks all tables in all databases (without opening
them). In this case mysqldump will automatically disable --lock-tables
because it makes no sense when --lock-all-tables is used. or try with add
--single_transaction to your mysqldump command
