"file-deleted-duplicate" error message shows raw parameter placeholders when attempting to upload previously-deleted file
Closed, DuplicatePublicBUG REPORT

Description

I attempted to upload an image to Wikimedia Commons; this resulted in an error message saying:

A file identical to this file ([[:$1]]) has previously been deleted. You should check that file's [https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Log/delete?type=delete&page={{urlencode:$1|WIKI}} deletion history]. If you disagree with the reason for deletion, please make an [[Commons:Undeletion requests|undeletion request]] instead of re-uploading.

Naturally, I was unable to do as requested.

Presumably file-deleted-duplicate needs to be rendered somewhere as parsed (wikitext) instead of plaintext.

n.b. the task I just merged this into says "for Flickr uploads", I will update the description to mention this also happens for normal file uploads as well.
