Aklapper renamed this task from "Main Page" incorrectly displayed as page title in error messages to "Main Page" incorrectly displayed as page title in error messages with "Return to $pagetitle".May 5 2020, 3:59 PM

Note that this is not an error per se. If you don't select any revision that does not make sense and so you'll be redirected to an error page, the "return to mainpage" is meant to guide you and everything back to normalcy. There are many pages (that are not normal to come by) that have that generic return message also.
