As a long qtcreator user I have existing settings, projects etc.
Today after upgrading to extra/qtcreator 4.6.2-1 [installed]
I started receiving strange error dialogs on startup. Multiple items and I could not do anything other than quit. Which gave me various more such dialogs.

Example dialog text;
"Cannot overwrite file /home/me/.config/QtProject/qtcreator/devices.xml: Unknown error"

That file exists just fine and after git cloning and compiling the same version of qtcreator manually this issue goes away. So its likely a build error.
Maybe you forgot to rebuild creator after Qt updated?
This task depends upon

Not much we can do here without more details or a way to reproduce. What's the full terminal output? What filesystem is your home directory in?
