See Support.TemplateOopsAttentionNotFound for a description of the problem. If the {TemplatePath} is misconfigured, TWiki cannot find the templates. However, the error printed from Template.pm is the misleading

Template "oopsattention" not found. Check the configuration setting for {TemplateDir}.

I sopent too long following the rathole of trying to "fix" the perferctly correct {TemplateDir} without realizing that there was a {TemplatePath} or that it was broken.

A better error message would have been most helpful.
