The issue on Yarn is that it is impossible to have different LOCAL_DIRS on JobManager and TaskManager, despite LOCAL_DIRS value depends on the container.
The issue is that CoreOptions.TMP_DIRS is configured to the default value during JobManager initialization and added to the configuration object. When TaskManager is launched the appropriate configuration object is cloned with LOCAL_DIRS which makes sense only for Job Manager container. When YARN container with TaskManager from his point of view CoreOptions.TMP_DIRS is always equal either to path in flink.yml or to the or to the LOCAL_DIRS of Job Manager (default behaviour). Is TaskManager’s container do not have an access to another folders, that folders allocated by YARN TaskManager cannot be started.
