Use the command line maintenance script to do the rename, or use a different account to do the rename.

The article says, "You can't rename the same account from where you're performing the rename. Use the command line maintenance script to do the rename, or use a different account to do the rename."

I'm in the maintenance folder, but there does not appear to be a script to perform the rename:

# ls |grep -i rename
renameDbPrefix.php
renameRestrictions.php

I'm using Mediawiki 1.35.2, if it matters.

That's because the renameUser maintenance script is not located in MediaWiki's default maintenance folder, but in extensions/Renameuser/maintenance.
