I just installed 1.8.13 and I'm getting the following 2 errors:
Invalid library found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\ESP8266SdFat: no headers files (.h) found
in C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\ESP8266SdFat
Invalid library found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\SoftwareSerial: no headers files (.h) found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\SoftwareSerial
When I look in those to library folders they are both empty.
Where should these to libraries come from?
I'm using the ESP8266 NodeMCU board and have installed the board using the board manager
? < This is a question. Try to answer

Where they should come from may depend on what project you are trying to compile and where you got it from.
If you are following a project from online then they usually add the library as a seperate download or tell you where to go to get it.
As it is for an ESP you may also have to install the board cores for the ESP for which there are many sites that explain
how to install ESP to the IDE
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
