Follow-up Comment #1, bug #51220 (project findutils):

It would help if you simplified the example.  In this case, make the variable
substitutions.  And instead of using "cp" as the command which is executed,
thus showing us only the error message "cp" reports and leaving us to guess
what the command was, use "echo" as the command.

That would give an example like this:
echo "one two three four" |
xargs -n1 -I{} echo cp -v "/tmp/{}" /tmp/test
