Drush 10 not finding drupal root

I am trying to update a drupal 8 site to drupal 9. It is on Godaddy with cpanel.

I had to bring it up to the latest 8.x version before going up to drupal 9. I am using composer to manage the dependencies. As part of this I updated drush to v10.

Drush has suddenly stopped being able to find the root of the Drupal install and cannot do much of anything. When I run drush status i get the following:

~/vendor/bin/drush status  PHP binary    : /opt/alt/php74/usr/bin/php  PHP config    : /opt/alt/php74/etc/php.ini  PHP OS        : Linux  Drush script  : /home/lz7m8hr2s8ob/vendor/drush/drush/drush  Drush version : 10.6.2  Drush temp    : /tmp  Drush configs : /home/lz7m8hr2s8ob/vendor/drush/drush/drush.yml  Drupal root   : /home/lz7m8hr2s8ob/public_html/public_html  

The actual root is /home/lz7m8hr2s8ob/public_html

I have tried:

  1. Passing in the --root flag (Does absolutely nothing)
  2. Running drush from inside the site root
  3. Deleting and re-installing drush with composer

How do I force drush 10 to use the correct root?

I tested the upgrade on a local copy and another copy of the site on a similar server. This issue did not arise.
