This isn't an IDLE issue and is instead due to the core interpreter. This isn't a bug, there just isn't a more specialised error message for the dictionary unpacking failure.

Changing the error message to something more helpful would be an enhancement and therefore would not be back-ported to Python 3.9 and before.
