Why do I see the error "Can't mkdir parents for /var/lib/awx/venv/ansible: No such file or directory" in Ansible Tower when performing an SCM update?

When initiating an SCM update in Tower with job isolation enabled, the following error message populates:

Can't mkdir parents for /var/lib/awx/venv/ansible: No such file or directory
