Unable to run any job.

Don't quite know what happened but we have been seeing every job fail with cryptic messages such as the following:-

Diagnostic Message:- Advanced runtime options used: lsi.readu

Error Message :- main_program: A step specification should be the final item; saw: -f.
Error Message :-

Nothing changed in the environment. What could be causing this? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
