Snapcraft build fails: "/root/project/: Permission denied"

I have been trying to compile a snap (written by another dev) on my local machine (Mint 20). The process worked a few weeks ago, but now I get the errors shown below. Any help or guidance as to what might need to be changed would be appreciated.

 $ snapcraft --debug
Launching a VM.
bash: line 0: cd: /root/project/: Permission denied                             
An error occurred when trying to execute 'sudo -H -i env
snap unset system proxy.http' with 'multipass': returned exit code 1.

I did try removing and reinstalling the multipass snap.

Thanks! The suggestion there to downgrade to a previous version of multipass helped me solve this problem.
