Compiling FF78: "Could not find artifacts for ... "win32-minidump-stackwalk""

So I'm trying to compile the newest FF78 (W7x64).

   hg pull && hg update

Now as usual, "mach" annoyingly complains about some compiler being outdated, so as every month I have to

   mach bootstrap

I select 2 (normal FF), it downloads "node.tar.bz2", then "fix-stacks.tar.bz2" and then crashes with "Could not find artifacts for a toolchain build named `win32-minidump-stackwalk`".

So what exactly does it want me to do and why does this happen?

"mach clobber python" does not work.

Thank you

    0:05.53 Could not find artifacts for a toolchain build named `win32-minidump-stackwalk`. Local commits, dirty/stale files, and other changes in your checkout may cause this error. Make sure you are on a fresh, current checkout of mozilla-central. If you are already, you may be able to avoid this error by running `mach clobber python`. Beware that commands like `mach bootstrap` and `mach artifact` are unlikely to work on any versions of the code besides recent revisions of mozilla-central.

HI sdagfk

This forum is focused on Firefox user problems; not developer issues. For problems with compiling firefox i recommend discourse
