Ugh, what a terribly worded error message. It sounds like [document] contains multiple flows with the same flow tag, A. FM doesn't
know which one to compare to the (hopefully) single flow A in the other

If changing the name of a flow to B didn't help, it means one of two
things (depending on what "didn't help" means, exactly): either there
are still multiple flows named A or you changed the name of the flow you
wanted to compare. Or both. 

In general, unless you're doing a newsletter or something like that, you
should only have one flow in the body pages of your document. The fact
that you have multiple flows without being aware of it suggests there
may be something wrong, like disconnected pages. You may need to do some
detective work on your doc. See the Page Layout chapter/topic in the
manual/help and/or look up text flows, text frames, and autoconnect.
