Within a eamcs -q session and in a tramp dired buffer and call dired-do-compress-to on a file, I got this eror

zip I/O error: No such file or directory
zip error: Could not create output file (/ssh:[email protected]:/home/user/Downloads/a.zip)

However, calling dired-do-compress on the same file is just OK.

How can I fix this?

I can reproduce it with Emacs 28.0.50. Looks like an error; pls report it as Emacs bug via M-x report-emacs-bug.
