The problem might be because your custom app doesn’t use git.

When frappe try to get app branch using git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD it’ll cause an error.

You could verify by running
bench execute frappe.utils.change_log.get_versions

Your custom app is likely not having branch info.


To fix this you should run

git init
git add *
git commit -m 'Initial commit'

on your app folder
