Update_kernel.sh is no longer working/complains about missing glibc on host

I am trying to refresh the kernel for 6.6.31-rc1 but am finding this on the uml target:

My host (Arch Linux) has the glibc package installed which is providing all three of the files it is complaining about. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

I can circumvent by editing target/linux/uml/image/Makefile removing the last 4 lines.
