I can confirm this. It's hyper-annoying when testing the UploadWizard.

To reproduce, upload any file through UW. Once that's gone through, visit the file description page and delete the file. Then try to upload the same file again through UW.

It's in mw.UploadWizardUpload.js, the 'duplicate-archive' case at line 225ff. See also bug 39852 (there used to be a way to override this).

At least users having the appropriate rights should have a possiblity to override this. Off-hand I don't see any user right that would be 100% appropriate (I see no 'deleted-reupload' or some such), the closest existing right appears to be 'reupload'.

Since the normal upload form allows re-uploading of previously deleted files (though giving a warning about this), the override could maybe be provided for anybody irrespective of user rights.

There already is functionality to handle this, but it was disable due to bug 39852. Seeing if we care revive it now.

This is not a duplicate of T42893. That one is for existing files.

Change 237158 had a related patch set uploaded (by Bartosz Dziewoński):
Allow reupload of deleted files ('duplicate-archive' warning)

Bug 39852 (T41852) does not seem to come back with the above patch, possibly due to my fix for T92801 or something else that happened in the last three years.

The more generic issue is T77550 (which I merged in a somewhat stupid way as the open bug is much less general). The traditional upload form has a checkbox to ignore recoverable warnings; UW does not offer anything like that. Most of the cases where this comes up are not relevant to Commons but can be annoying on 3rd-party wikis (e.g. can't upload a file locally on an InstantCommons-using wiki because Commons already has something by that name).

Fixed, thanks MatmaRex!
