Just went across this error today and visited the Stow lists' archives
only to find this message with no answer. Did you figure out what caused
this problem?

I'm running GNU Stow version 2.3.1 and was using the following dotfiles
directory [1] for the i3 Window Manager configuration. This would cause
the error mentioned by Oliver "ERROR: stow_contents() called with
non-directory path" with the corresponding path on my system.

I'm also CCing the bug-stow list since I believe this is more related
with the bug list than the discussion/help one (if that matters).
