ok. I see.
When building PharoLauncher, Metacello loads PL code with url: 
	Metacello new 
		baseline: 'PharoLauncher’; 
		repository: 'gitlocal://src'; 
In PL, if you inspect IceRepository registry, you will notice a repository IceLibGitRepository(.) corresponding to the above expression.
when you run PL from UI, working directory is /, IceLibGitRepository(.) then is resolved to / => no git repo there.
That’s why you get: Could not find repository from ‘/'

Here is a fix for it:
(IceRepository registeredRepositoryIncludingPackage: (RPackageOrganizer default packageNamed: 'PharoLauncher-Core'))
	name: 'pharo-launcher';
	location: nil
