Cleanup populate_sdk artefacts


Hi all,

I'm working with a yocto Dunfell (3.1) on my embedded system.
I successfully built the SDK install script for my image recipe with: bitbake my-image -c populate_sdk
However, the other day when I stopped the SDK generation before completing (CTRL-C) and resumed it a couple of minutes after, bitbake was not able to finish generating the SDK, saying:

Exception: FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/yoctouser/build/tmp/work/colibri_imx7_emmc-tdx-linux-gnueabi/my-image/1.0-r1/sdk/image/opt/machine-fb/5.0.0-devel-20200924080856+build.0/sysroots/x86_64-tdxsdk-linux/usr/lib/locale'

I was able to determine that bitbake uses the variable DISTRO_VERSION for building some paths during the generation.
My DISTRO_VERSION changes for each generation because it is built on starting time generation.
I had to remove all my work folder in order for bitbake to restart the SDK generation from scratch... Which takes some time...

Do you know if there is a way to cleanup the SDK generation properly in case of a halt in the middle of the generation ?

Thank you for your time, have a great day!
