If you run ejabberd as root, then it might be the case when the directory
where the DB id dumping doesn't exist.

Note that ejabberdctl doesn't do actual dump. It only tells running ejabberd
to dump. So,

1) If the directory for DB dump is specified as relative path, it adds not to
ejabberd current dir, not to ejabberdctl current dir.

2) The directory must exist and be writable for user running ejabberd, not
