The UploadWizard sometimes creates invalid flickr URL's. Here a list of some (or all?) files with the error: http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Search&limit=500&offset=0&redirs=1&ns0=1&ns4=1&ns6=1&ns9=1&ns10=1&ns12=1&ns14=1&ns100=1&ns106=1&search=%22flickr.com%2Fphotos%2Fnull%22

Thanks for the bug report. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/55874/ tries to fix this.

Not sure how to fix the actual null values in commons.

That link actually doesn't show me any appropriate results with null source. Can you link to a specific file?

It used to show lots of results, I wonder if somebody fixed it.
Amada44, can you provide link to a file?

yes, the links have been fixed. Here a file with the fixed link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File%3AClasping_Leaved_Twisted_Stalk.gif&diff=94213388&oldid=94117339 .

The issue still exists. I'm wondering if it isn't liking the "@" symbol with Flickr users who haven't assigned a name for their URL (e.g. 1234567@N89).

Patch now merged. Seems like this was a problem for users that did not have an alias defined.

Gilles moved this task from Untriaged to Done on the Multimedia board.
