I have a view with a path "something/%", it has 1 argument. I know I can create an URL alias for specific paths, like "something/content", but I'd like to create an URL alias to the generic path, for example "something-else/%". However, if I introduce a path with arguments as an existing url, I receive an error "the path is invalid or you don't have access to it".

Is there any way to do this? thanks!!

Did you find a solution for this? I am trying to do the same thing in Drupal 6.

Hi jordiserra. This sounds like a redirect problem rather than an aliasing problem, and isn't really what pathauto is intended for. I'd recommend looking into using a redirection module or hook_menu() to solve this problem.
