Changelog: Bugfix: A conan install with a reference failed when running in the operating system root folder because python tried to create the directory even when nothing is going to be written.

Closes #4002

The real issue happen if you try to run os.makedirs("c:") python will fail with a different error than EEXIST, note that the directory c:\ of course, exists, and we are able to write it even! But we cannot create it.

It makes sense. Although I'm afraid that given mkdir("C:"), Conan will call rmdir("C:") at some point ☠️ , but yes, this is a licit usage.
