If you look at the sisters of Ellen cooper (and others) some are showing as half sisters and brothers for no obvious reason (well it is not obvious to me). Can anyone see what the issue is please? these are (or should be) all full siblings

That means one of the parents is either different, or lacking (compared to the person you are currently looking at).

For the case of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cooper-28157, there is no mother set.

To fix that, write down the ID of the correct mother. Go to Edit, on the right you see 'Add/edit mother'. Then enter the ID of the mother in the small box (do not enter any other information) and save.

This usually happens if you do not check the last checkbox when creating a new child. You need to explicitly tell the system that the other parent should be linked.
