Thanks Leo - indeed it was so suprising that I thought it was referring
to the root of the chroot used to build rather than just the root of

This was a bad assumption on my behalf  as /homeless-shelter really did
exist at my filesystem root (containing a single .config directory with
2 yamls in it related to the python dask package).

I moved the directory and everything is back to normal.

Even stranger the datestamp on the homeless shelter was from November
2021, so why it decided to start fail yesterday I have no idea.

Thanks again and sorry for the daft question - if I'd literally followed
the advice in the error message I'd have resolved it myself!  Way too
much overthinking on my behalf!
