Cheers for this, Tom. @Mehmet, do you want to try this again now?

The point is that it is not clear that you are only editing the last part
of the URL. You are entering into a box below a URL in a field marked URL.
I'm sure Mehmet is not the only one confused that you can only enter part
of a URL here.
Actually the error message talking about 'urls'
BTW I think it is a bit weird that when you open this form you are
immediately struck by bright lime green text saying "This URL is
available!" when you have not typed anything yet, and a blank entry fails
