The error message doesn't prevent the evaluation from taking place. In this case it acts more as a warning. You may eliminate this warning using Quiet:
In[1]:= Partition[Range[10],m]/.m->3//QuietOut[2]= {{1,2,3},{4,5,6},{7,8,9}}
Alternatively you can write the ReplaceAll inside the brackets:
In[3]:= Partition[Range[10],m/.m->3]Out[3]= {{1,2,3},{4,5,6},{7,8,9}}
or you can use With:
In[5]:= With[{m=3},Partition[Range[10],m]]Out[5]= {{1,2,3},{4,5,6},{7,8,9}}
In all cases, m has to be a positive integer; otherwise the error actually prevents the evaluation. The definition of Partition doesn't make this explicit but I guess it goes without saying.
