I couldn't find an announcement anywhere, but filetxt looks to have been
removed in version 20.11 (see here
slurmdbd seems to be the only option at this time.  The
"AccountingStorageLoc" only has meaning in the context of the
filetxt plugin, hence the error.  I think your options are to do without
accounting (if possible in your environment) or set up SlurmDBD.

It's confusing as it looks like some Slurm docs still indicate this
as an option.
