Seems to be line 1333 of src/core/libs/

The attached patch solves part of the problem. I'm not sure where the contents of /repos is supposed to come from though.

thanks Dave, that fixes it. pushed to develop.
/repo will exist (and hold /repo/core) on core images. but people can basically mount whichever repos under /repo either at image build time (custom images) or at runtime.
but on images like netinstall the dir doesn't exist.
