These logs were never in the mainline youtube.lua script, it seems you
were using an alternate version. Please make sure that an old stray
version isn't installed in ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/playlist/ Please try
after installing/updating in ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/playlist/ the most
recent youtube.lua from the master branch:

If the problem still persists (which I'm quite confident it won't),
please resubmit full logs (the links to full logs have unfortunately
expired) and/or contact me directly, I will see it through.

Best regards,
