I don't know if you're aware but GNU make 3.78.1 was released over 20
years ago, in Sep 1999...

That error refers to a temporary file that make created to write the
recipe commands that it wanted to run, then it ran the temporary file
(which printed that error), then it deleted the temporary file.

The error is in that temporary file, which means that the error is in
the makefile recipe.

If you can find the recipe in your makefile for the "dirs" target,
which is the one that failed, and show that to us (again, please copy
and paste text, do not insert screenshots) we may be able to see the

Also, if you remove the "@" prefix characters from the recipe for the
"dirs" target then run make, make will print out what it's going to put
into that temporary file and probably you will be able to see that
something is wrong there.
