From the log, it looks like it fails in 'install-data-hook'. If so,
the culprit might be some Makefile.am. Have upstream updated a
Makefile.am to include 'desktop-file-install', failing when not making a
"real" install int /usr?
If this is right, you should be able to verify that the %install hasn't
really begun when the error is triggered. If unsure, put some simple
'echo' statement in top of %install to verify that it hasn't been started.
If this doesn't help, scanning the generated Makefiles for
'desktop-file-install' and/or '/usr/share/applications' might give a clue
