Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 The default directory is /usr/share/empty.

 "This option should be the name of a directory which is empty. Also, the
 directory should not be writable by the ftp user. This directory is used
 as a secure chroot() jail at times vsftpd does not require filesystem

 How about using /usr/share/vsftpd/empty  With permissions 755 root:root?
