That this question repeatedly appears is a sign of a problem. Either there is 
no simple way (i.e. a guide doc) that allows a user to decipher error messages. 
Or there is such a document, but it is not easy to find out about its 
existence. 

Perhaps error messages might be annotated with a pointer to a rule about how 
some error messages should be interpreted.
