AWX: There are no available playbook directories in /var/lib/awx/projects

New install using

When creating new project as Manual, I get the error:

There are no available playbook directories in /var/lib/awx/projects. Either that directory is empty, or all of the contents are already assigned to other projects. Create a new directory there and make sure the playbook files can be read by the “awx” system user, or have AWX directly retrieve your playbooks from source control using the Source Control Type option above.

There is no problem using Git for a new project.
