I cannot reproduce this error. It seems to be fixed. Please provide further Feedback on how to reproduce on the current release of 8LTS if the bug still occurs for you. Otherwise we can close this issue.

Still reproducible in TYPO3 8.7.3

You need to create a TCA override file for sys_file_reference with the contents above to see the error.

But the following code works:

$GLOBALS['TCA']['sys_file_reference']['columns']['crop']['config']['cropVariants']['default'] = [
    'title' => 'LLL:EXT:lang/Resources/Private/Language/locallang_wizards.xlf:imwizard.crop_variant.default',
    'allowedAspectRatios' => [
        '21:9' => [
            'title' => '21:9',
            'value' => 21 / 9

And if I remove the title key-value from the array above, the error is back again.

$GLOBALS['TCA']['sys_file_reference']['columns']['crop']['config']['cropVariants']['default']['allowedAspectRatios'] = [
        '21:9' => [
            'title' => '21:9',
            'value' => 21 / 9

It seems like the overrides for crop variants are not acting as overrides, but as a replacement, therefore previously initialized title is removed and an error occurs.

The problem seems still present in TYPO3 8.7.9.

The full error message:

Core: Exception handler (WEB): Uncaught TYPO3 Exception: #1351584844: An argument "key" or "id" has to be provided | TYPO3Fluid\Fluid\Core\Exception thrown in file /TYPO3-dists/typo3_src-8.7.9/typo3/sysext/fluid/Classes/ViewHelpers/TranslateViewHelper.php in line 133.

Plus, the error sets also an error 500 (at least for me); the apache log reads:

Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace., referer: http://typo3.7.master.it:8899/typo3/index.php?route=%2Fmain&token=86b8f8805a867dae6cf9b3730755e76cb3a236df

$GLOBALS['TCA']['sys_file_reference']['columns']['crop']['config']['cropVariants']['default']['allowedAspectRatios'] = [..]

This line is a replacement. You override the configuration completely with your new definition.
(That's how array operations in PHP work.)

If you want to override only some keys, either set them explicitly or use an array_* function from PHP to merge the existing and your new configuration.
