Refining the variational method introduced in Azé et al. [Nonlinear Anal. 49 (2002) 643-670], we give characterizations of the existence of so-called global and local error bounds, for lower semicontinuous functions defined on complete metric spaces. We thus provide a systematic and synthetic approach to the subject, emphasizing the special case of convex functions defined on arbitrary Banach spaces (refining the abstract part of Azé and Corvellec [SIAM J. Optim. 12 (2002) 913-927], and the characterization of the local metric regularity of closed-graph multifunctions between complete metric spaces.
