Error message "change <num> closed" is not clear enough

Reported by org...@gmail.com, Jul 7 2015

Issue description

Affected Version: 2.11

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Push 4 commits, 2 of them with the same Change-Id
2. Push a commit, abandon it, amend (to change its hash) and re-push

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
1. The error message reads "squash commits first". I'd expect it to tell me *which* commits, instead of sending me to compare all the possible pairs.
2. The error message reads "change <num> closed". I'd expect it to show a *link* instead of a change number, which means nothing to inexperienced users.

 
Summary: Error message "change <num> closed" is not clear enough (was: Error messages are not clear enough)
