Fatal: ambiguous argument '@': unknown revision or path not in the working tree

Errors for a test deployment, while issued launcher rebuild app:

fatal: ambiguous argument '@': unknown revision or path not in the working tree.
Use '--' to separate paths from revisions, like this:
'git <command> [<revision>...] -- [<file>...]'
fatal: Not a valid object name @
./launcher: line 770: [: @: unary operator expected
./launcher: line 780: [: ee207cb4d2809f08d403bbd22370d64d4ffe657a: unary operator expected
Launcher has diverged source, this is only expected in Dev mode 

And the build result, with restored backup data, I can not access the forum via browser, connection refused.

Is this a standard production install (discourse/INSTALL-cloud.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub)?

## Any custom commands to run after building
run:
  - exec: echo "Beginning of custom commands"
  ## If you want to set the 'From' email address for your first registration, uncomment and change:
  ## After getting the first signup email, re-comment the line. It only needs to run once.
  #- exec: rails r "SiteSetting.notification_email='info@unconfigured.discourse.org'"
  - exec: echo "End of custom commands"

It’s standard quick install

it was tested on Aliyun HongKong ECS. I think web.china.template.yml should only be needed for servers in mainland China, not needed for HongKong server?

Will try a new ecs and clean install without backup, see if it works
