snapshot error

My Mac Pro has been acting a bit glitchy lately with High Sierra and if I run disk utility it comes up with an error message:

error: inode_val: object (oid 0x3): invalid nchildren (-3)

This appears to be linked to the version snapshots and I cannot get it to go away. If I enter recovery mode it won't even let me run disk utility on the main drive.

Yesterday I installed a new metal enabled graphics card and planned on running a clean install of Mojave, but I'm curious if anybody has come across this snapshot version error before, since I gather they are used by the system and I believe SuperDuper! makes use of them.
