This is from one of your logfiles:

It looks like your BOINC client has been shut down but there wasn't enough time to completely shut down the VM.
Things like that often leave garbage around which cause problems in new sessions.

The advice would be
- to pause all tasks from all projects that are not yet started
- to let all running tasks finish and report them
- to shut down the BOINC client

The /slots/x/ directories should now be empty.
If not, the content is either garbage or a task is not yet finished.


If no running/paused tasks are left and the BOINC client has been shut down the directories below /slots/ can be removed.
Then restart your BOINC client and resume the tasks.
