When using wp-cli the error output from wordpress which states "Could not create directory." should also include the directory that was attempted to create, ideally as an absolute non-relative path name.

This is needed so that users do not have to resort to opening up permissions on all files and directories, even if temporarily.

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

Just noting that there are three different instances of the "Could not create directory" message in core. Indeed, it makes sense to include the directory name in all of them.
