the import plugin searches the posts in a directory named 'source' or at a path defined in the config.

rel_path = self._jekyll_config.get('source', 'source')

but there is no such directory. maybe there was in earlier versions, i have jekyll 3.1.2 installed.

structure of new projects look like this:

├── _config.yml
├── _includes
│   ├── footer.html
│   ├── head.html
│   ├── header.html
│   ├── icon-github.html
│   ├── icon-github.svg
│   ├── icon-twitter.html
│   └── icon-twitter.svg
├── _layouts
│   ├── default.html
│   ├── page.html
│   └── post.html
├── _posts
│   └── 2016-03-02-welcome-to-jekyll.markdown
├── _sass
│   ├── _base.scss
│   ├── _layout.scss
│   └── _syntax-highlighting.scss
├── css
│   └── main.scss
├── feed.xml
└── index.html

and no 'source' parameter in config:

# Site settings
title: Your awesome title
description: > # this means to ignore newlines until "baseurl:"
  Write an awesome description for your new site here. You can edit this
  line in _config.yml. It will appear in your document head meta (for
  Google search results) and in your feed.xml site description.
baseurl: "" # the subpath of your site, e.g. /blog
url: "" # the base hostname & protocol for your site
twitter_username: jekyllrb
github_username:  jekyll

# Build settings
markdown: kramdown

my workaround changes the search path:

-         posts_path = os.path.join(self._jekyll_path, rel_path, '_posts')
+         posts_path = os.path.join(self._jekyll_path, '_posts')
