From http://blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/08/the-death-of-meta-tags/:

  1. If the tag can’t work as the only tag on a question, it’s probably a meta-tag.

    Clearly, and fit this criterion.

  2. If the tag commonly means different things to different people, it’s probably a meta-tag.

    is more for error messages, so no, but...

    is more subjective. What may be a problem to some people is a benefit to another.

    problem gets my vote. But error I'm not so sure about - maybe it would be better renamed as error-message? – DMA57361 Oct 30 '10 at 15:53

    I would still argue that error-message is not a useful tag. It in no way describes or categorizes the question. – heavyd Nov 12 '10 at 15:41

  • Why there is no explanation of the tag when you mouse over it? – Quidam Dec 16 '16 at 7:33

IMO both are meta tags. could mean error messages or an error that happened during photo copy/ other operation. Problem.. hmm yeah but what's the problem ?
