Another recent exemple:
Jun 18 2021
For me it is again working as before. I managed to add the interwikilink for https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Tanmoy_Bhattacharya through the 'link with dialog'.

@Mike_Peel thanks for the updating of the description

I increased priority in order to attract attention on the way the software is reacting by now since yesterday.
By now it is on Commons no longer possible to add site links through theas shown here as soon as you fill in the field for the language the next field page is not accessible.
May 17 2021
From a user/editor perspective the add links function should definitely be available on all pages as it simplifies the linking of newly created pages with existing pages in other projects. I would even be preferable if you could as well from this add links button link to other wikimedia projects eg. Commons.

indeed now I see the iw links and I will close this ticket

Indeed it has been moved to the upper right corner. This is not that easily to be detected by users and should be well explained and indicated very clearly to users. Moreover with not even the language link to the language defined for the userinterface visible by default it will be dificult to detect by users as well as additional clicks as you have first on the x languages button and then you haveto search for the language youz would like to switch to. This should be improved.
as it is according to my findings applicable to all pages in all language versions

i found in my contributions another unintentional multiple creation creation of items in wikidata:
Sep 9 2020
And 2 days ago I hat again the same behaviour as you may see from the following extract of my contributions:
Aug 26 2020
This very old (closed) issue T48119 seems very simlar to me, The only difference is it happened on manual action here while the old issue was with a bot user.
Aug 21 2020
Aug 20 2020
I initiated the linking from Commons.
Aug 19 2020
This looks quite similar to T44325
May 28 2020
Is this issue linked to T252800 ? indeed it is in some way similar as it affects as well just Vector skin and has an impact on displayed menu items.
May 14 2020
Another exemple for the same issue is: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Raymond_McLeod (I am aware thath this category on commons might be deleted as it contains no files)

While on https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Bridges_completed_in_1772 i just get suggestions of wikivoyage projects:
Just a few minutes later i get on the same page https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Caister-on-Sea the following situation:and then I manage to finalize the operation successfully and the iw link is added successfully on wikidata.
By now I receive a similar behaviour as Mike Peel received yesterday. As an exemple I received on the page https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Caister-on-Sea the following situation:
Mar 12 2020
and just on another exemple the error message refers to 'specieswiki'
By now the error message has changed 'mediawikiwiki' has now changed to 'metawiki'
Mar 11 2020
The same error happens for the pair of pages: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Songwe_Region and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Songwe_Region
Dec 15 2019
Dec 14 2019
Nevertheless the link from wikidata Q2554856 to the article on en-wikipedia is broken so either the link should be deleted or (if possible according to the policy of wikidata) be updated.
Aug 18 2019
This issue is influencing the results displayed on the snyc pages of the mix'n'match catalogues e.g. https://tools.wmflabs.org/mix-n-match/#/sync/745 where I detected the error first

Concerning the duplicates mentionned in T229391: Two wikidata items with the same sitelink.
A few more examples of double creations in wikidata which where done without that I intended to do so:
May 16 2019
And here are another 3 examples where creating wikidata items on base of categories on Commons lead to the creation of 2 items on wikidata linked to the same pages on Commons and on en-wikipedia
May 15 2019
Today there was again on 7 occassions unintended creation of duplicate items in wikidata:
Apr 25 2019
Today there was again twice a creation of duplicate items in wikidata:
Jan 17 2019
The list of more examples and a description of how such duplicates were generated unintentionally is now availyble on: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Project_chat/Archive/2018/10#Items_created_unintentionally_twice_on_several_occasions
After removing the local interwiki on https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Yema_T80 i manage again to reproduce the error as well on thi spage and get the simular error message:
I just retried as well for the second exemple and got a similar error in tmy browser (Firefox Version 64.0.2, 64 bit) webconsole:
Jan 16 2019
Another exemple for the same behaviour are https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:1893_in_Wyoming and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:1893_in_Wyoming
Oct 26 2018
Oct 25 2018
This seems to be independent of the browser used as I get the same behaviour with Microsoft EdgeHTML 17.17134

By now this issue is solved (at least from what I noticed) Aadding links to other languages is again working at least from both Commons and en.wikipedia.
Nov 16 2017
The same issue happens as well on Commons. I went on https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:1_Princes_Dock clicked there on the left hand menu under In Wikipedida on 'Add links' and get the error message "An unknown error"occurred".
Nov 29 2016
After making some more tests today everything is back to normal as well with firefox 52 : 52.0a2 (2016-11-28) (32-bit)
Nov 28 2016
I now noticed that everything seems working correctly with Firefox 50.0 while i noticed the issue with Firefox 52.0 a2 (Aurora) I hope more testing will help clarifying the issue.
The same issue reappeared today!
Nov 10 2016
many thanks to all those who helped solving this issue!
I notice the same issue again.
By now (some minutes later) everything is back to normal. So most probably it was just due to some issues on the wikidata servers.
ups I mistaked in the date I noticed it today 10 november 2016 and everything worked well yesterday evening 9 november 2016.

Ups my last sentence in the previous comment is not correct It should be:
I just noticed the following error message concerning network (using function Inspect Element of Firefox) the following:
I get the same error for days on any message groupe I try to load the list of messages to translate:
