There is no way.  Errors are intercepted based on the response 
headers, and the response body is not read from the upstream 
server if the error is intercepted.

If you need to analyze the response body, consider using njs 
instead.  Doing appropriate subrequest and looking into it might 
work for you, see here for details:
