This message indicates that something went wrong when trying to reading the
contents of the cluster status file.

The cluster status file should contain an erlang term with various information
about the node’s (you guessed it) cluster, and it’s located in
‘<mnesia_dir>/cluster_nodes.config’.  Unless you’re manually providing it (or
your packager has changed it), you can find out about the default location of
the mnesia directory here: <http://www.rabbitmq.com/relocate.html#unix>.

You should check that that file is there, and that RabbitMQ process has the
permissions to read it.  If that’s the case, please post its contents.  If the
node is not clustered, then you can just delete it and start the node, and
things should be fine.
