It looks like your .grassrc6 file is pointing to an invalid location. In
fact, your GISDBASE (GIS data folder) is pointed at your source file. Check
in the .grassrc6 file and either change the GISDBASE and LOCATION settings
to something valid or simply delete them so that GRASS will prompt you to
select a new path.
