I recently experienced a problem with catkin_make. I am unsure what changed before I experienced the error as I had been using my computer for a couple of weeks without needing to use catkin_make, but I had been using the files in my catkin_ws in that two week period. Therefore, I am uncertain what was the initial cause of the error (the error is included in the code segment below).

Other than the very first time I ran catkin_make, I received the following error message, which looks very similar:

Did you copy your workspace e. g. as backup from an to a zip or from and to an NTFS file system? The unix "is executable" flags (chmod +x) does not survive all of these copies so afterwards when you restore your backup your sh and python script are not executable anymore, which might cause such errors....

I didn't copy my workspace, but its possible that a package may have moved at some point. The files within those packages moved around, but I made sure the individual python files retained their chmod +x state. Thanks for the lead - it sounds more reasonable than any hypothesis I've come up with.
