Can not make clean water

for some reason my character has decided he can not make clean water any more, despite having about 25 units of water a hot player with a battery charge of 170ish when i go into the crafting menu and try to select clean water it says I dont have any water. I tried dropping the water jugs and hotplate and picking them back up with no luck. I have tried crafting them from the ground with the same result. This seems to have just started and it appears I have getting regular error message of health -1 (not sure if related though).

Debug is on, it’s toggled with ~ Do you have any /empty/ containers? You need an empty container to boil water into clean water. (Or at least one with clean water in it that isn’t full)

yes 16 empty bottles of water

They’re not empty if they’re bottles of water
