That is indeed a duplicate and I closed it. However, the text reason with Duplicate is:
This question has been answered before.
which is not strictly speaking true here. This question has been asked before but has not received an answer. It has comments, tag status-planned, etc. So it is being worked on, but no "answer".
Suggest text change to something like:
This question has been asked before.
either in place of the existing text or, if there is concern about different questions that happen to have answers which satisfy this new question then make two separate "duplicate" close reasons. (Which of course makes a duplicate of duplicate...)
