Launchpad doesn't support MPs between personal repositories, but the doc doesn't mention this limitation, and the error message isn't helpful

Bug Description

I was trying to create a merge request between two personal git repositories, and Launchpad would error out with "lp:~osomon/+git/libreoffice-snap is not mergeable into this repository.".

This doesn't really tell me what the cause of the error is, or suggest how I can fix it.

The documentation at doesn't mention this limitation, either.
