All wine games fail to start with "An error prevented the game to start"

I haven’t run anything from within lutris for a while but as of today I can’t run anything any longer. All (wine) games give the error:

An error prevented the game to start.

Nothing in the output window.

lutris -d output gives me:

Reinstalling Lutris without removing saved data (keep your settings) might help.
