FOAM FATAL ERROR in Foam ... could not find mandatory file 'controlDict

I am running a massively parallel job on OpenFOAM remotely.
Every time I submit and initiate the job, I get the following message in the Residuals:
" FOAM FATAL ERROR in Foam::findEtcFiles() : could not find mandatory file * * 'controlDict' "
Despite that though, the solver seems to read all input variables and BoCos and starts to iterate normally.
Supposedly "controlDict" can't be found when solving, however it is located in the case directory where it should be.
Is there a way to avoid this error? Should I maybe ignore it as long as the solver is running normally?
