There are two duplicates of this movie, but when I try to do a title correction to merge them, I get an error message saying that the title is the same.

this is the better one that I want to keep:

The problem is probably that you did not enter the title of the other project correctly.

The one that you wanted to merge has the internal title Star Wars Musical (2014) indicating that this was originally released to theaters.

The one you said you wanted to keep has the internal title Star Wars Musical (2014) (V) indicating that it was released to video/DVD/digital, not theatrically

The error message you received indicates that you did not include the (V) portion in the New title field.
Note that the fact that it is that portion of the title that is different means that you will get a warning message that you are changing the title's Type.  You will need to check the box beside Warning understood, go ahead anyway for the merge to be accepted. I assume that this 8 minute short will not have a theatrical release, in which case you are merging in the correct direction; if my assumption is wrong your should merge the other direction.
