Likely that's just a race you see when a lot of apps work in the same dir doing e.g. ls and rm.
See https://bugzilla.lustre.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16377 in particular comment #40

The message just tells us that a file we believe exists (we got it from lookup) does not
exist anymore when we are trying to fetch its attributes.
