cold boot no help: same message.

No changes that I did. This is out of park for me.

I guess I'm dead in the water for now.

Thanks, Larry! Not sure what happened, but several cold boots later ...
...and no changes on my end ...
Back in the Saddle! That was weird.

I guess Mr. Computer had to think about it for a while, finally responded.

EDIT: I hope this does not bode ill for Hard Drive health ...
I had that other HD crash in the middle of D21,
I guess I should start backing up files this time LoL
