Why do I get an "Salesforce to Salesforce invitation error" when attempting to accept a Salesforce to Salesforce invitation

Knowledge Article Number 000212688
Description When attempting to accept a Salesforce to Salesforce invitation the System Administrator receives the following error message:

Salesforce to Salesforce invitation error 
This invitation was sent from another user within your salesforce.com organization. Connections can only be created between organizations, not within a single salesforce.com organization
Resolution This error message is displaying before of one of two reasons:
  • System Administrator is attempting to setup a Salesforce to Salesforce connection between a Sandbox and Production: Connections can only be made between Production or Developer Edition Orgs
  • System Administrator is attempting to enable a Salesforce to Salesforce connection with an org that is already connected to your Org: There can only be one active connection between two Orgs. If you attempt to create a second connection with the same Org, you would receive an error.
