Hmmm, these are the built-in storage groups. I'd expect other failures.
A full log would be nice (in a pastebin, not here):

     m_builtinGroups["ChannelIcons"] = GetConfDir() + "/channels";
     m_builtinGroups["Themes"] = GetConfDir() + "/themes";
     m_builtinGroups["Temp"] = GetConfDir() + "/tmp";
     m_builtinGroups["Streaming"] = GetConfDir() + "/tmp/hls";
     m_builtinGroups["3rdParty"] = GetConfDir() + "/3rdParty";

Looking for a line with this in it:

     SG() Error: Could not create builtin...
