The problem seems to be linked to the value "" passed as `initial` to
`read-file-name`, it doesn't show up with a nil value for `initial`.

It seems to come from the following lines at the beginning of
read-file-name-default:

      (unless default-filename
        (setq default-filename (if initial (expand-file-name initial dir)
                                 buffer-file-name)))

because:

    M-: (expand-file-name "" "/tmp/")
    => "/tmp"

`copy-file` uses a "" argument via the `G` interactive code:

	case 'F':		/* Possibly nonexistent file name.  */
	  args[i] = read_file_name (Qnil, Qnil, Qnil, Qnil);
	  break;

	case 'G':		/* Possibly nonexistent file name,
				   default to directory alone.  */
	  args[i] = read_file_name (Qnil, Qnil, empty_unibyte_string, Qnil);
	  break;

IOW it uses `G` since otherwise hitting just RET would return the
`buffer-file-name` rather than the `default-directory`.

I propose the patch below.

Answering myself: this is a problem with completion routines: when the
user types a file name that is exactly identical to the default (or
just presses RET, which is the same), then the completion code in
read-file-name-internal returns a value that has the trailing slash
stripped.  And we now require a trailing slash to recognize NEWNAME as
a directory.

Maybe Stefan can help us out here.

Why would it be missing? which code removes it, if you typed it?

I couldn't reproduce on GNU/Linux either.

This is a different use case.

It seems NEWNAME, i.e., the second argument seeing by `copy-file' might be different
when called interactively; this is true even if the user introduces the 
same value.

I have printed out newname before the line
newname = expand_cp_target (file, newname);
at src/fileio.c

I)
M-: (copy-file "/tmp/foo" "~/") RET
;; it shows "~/" as expected

II)
M-x: copy-file RET /tmp/foo RET ~/ RET
;; it shows "~" (the '/' is missing)

Apparentely, this was unnoticed because before Emacs 26 we were using predicate
`file-directory-p`
M-: (file-directory-p "~") RET
=> t

After commit 'Fix race with rename-file etc. with dir NEWNAME'
(01c885f21f343045783eb9ad1ff5f9b83d6cd789)
we use `directory-name-p`, and the issue is revealed.

(directory-name-p "~")
=> nil

Since you cannot reproduce the issue, it might be platform dependent.
I am able to reproduce it in this nice site, which runs Emacs 26.3 in a linux machine:
https://repl.it/languages/elisp

M-! touch /tmp/foo RET
M-x copy-file RET /tmp/foo RET RET
;; received prompt
;; FILE /home/runner already exists; copy to it anyway? (yes or no)

;; Eval following forms from the *ielm* buffer 
(file-exists-p "~/foo") RET
=> nil

(copy-file "/tmp/foo" "~/")
=> nil

(file-exists-p "~/foo") RET
=> t

I cannot reproduce this, so there must be more here than meets the
eye, like whether /tmp/foo existed before the 'touch' command (and if
so, what kind of file is it and what are its attributes), the contents
of your home directory that could have something to do with this, etc.

So please step through the code and tell where it fails and why.
Alternatively, try reproducing this in a cleaner environment (a home
directory and /tmp could have a lot of files), and see if something
changes then.

Or maybe you didn't actually type the slash in "~/" when invoking the
command interactively?

Thanks.

Observed a disagreement when calling `copy-file' interactively VS calling
it from Lisp.

This is a recipe:

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
emacs -Q:
$ touch /tmp/foo
M-x copy-file RET /tmp/foo RET ~/ RET
;; Received prompt:
;; File /home/calancha already exists; copy to it anyway? (y or n) 

;; In the other hand, the following works, i.e., it creates ~/foo
M-: (copy-file "/tmp/foo" "~/")
=> nil
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

Reproduced w/ Emacs 26-27; with Emacs 25, the interactive call
creates ~/foo as expected.

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
