This is quite frequent, please investigate soon.

When I looked in to this earlier in the week, the failure rate was something like 5%. The error is the same apparent problem as bug 1208729, which was blamed on (TC) infra, but perhaps erroneously (see
Flags: needinfo?(cmanchester)
It's likely a problem with aufs, used by docker on TC.
I also see this a lot in my (non-artifact) TC pushes.  We already use $(MKDIR) rather than `mkdir` most places; I wonder if we could make this more robust by retrying?
Looking at orange factor, this is happening on a number of TaskCluster based builds on try as well. Re-summarizing to match.

OrangeFactor is not mentioning beta or aurora, is it hurting there?
