We don't expect wikis to actually create pages for tracking categories, we categorise pages in them regardless IIRC. But there is still a problem here - it looks like https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/315465/ accidentally introduced code that adds the tracking category without the appropriate messages to define what the category should be called.

Might take a while for the category to empty out, but should be fixed now. Sorry about that.
