Time machine local snapshots become dataless - why?

Specs: Macintosh , 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 / 8GB
Why are my Time Machine local snapshots appearing "healthy" when listed in the Terminal window and then a few hours later, the same snapshots are shown suffixed with "dataless". Then, no more snapshots are added.

It all started when migrating to Mojave. Before and after I ran a disk check (First Aid) from the disk utility. It would not complete after Mojave migration while I had a snapshot showing "dataless".... So, I'm trying to determine why a snapshot becomes "dataless" and how. to fix it, as I want to ensure my backups - external and local snapshots - are reliable.

Thanks.
