VSCode Dev Container Failing to Build

I hope this helps others who may have come across this problem. A workspace I have with a dev container that has worked in the past was unable to build suddenly. The error I was getting was:

docker: Error response from daemon: invalid mount config for type 
"bind": bind source path does not exist: 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After a while of searching I navigated to \wsl.localhost\Ubuntu\mnt\wslg\runtime-dir\ on my Windows laptop and found that there was a wayland-0 and a wayland-0.lock file in the folder. I deleted these files and to rebuild and reopen my workspace in the dev container. This time it was successful and those files were not recreated. I can't tell you why this was an issue. I can only share what worked in my case. YMMV
