    This means that their plugin uses the WordPress Filesystem API incorrectly. It attempts to perform filesystem operations (in this case, looking up whether a file exists) without checking that the filesystem link is up. the WordPress Filesystem API has no way of handling that other than throwing a fatal error (the API only defines “yes” or “no” to the answer “does it exist?”, whereas if the link is not there then this is unknown either way), which is what is happening here. Hence, it can only be fixed in the calling plugin with the error.
