I used the same template before another unlocked package. It is working with no issue. 
I cannot figure out why this happened in the first place and how to resolve it.

P.S. it is a new package I try to deploy. I created based on my previous template. 
It ways on the state of package creation.

Hi Vladimir,

Greetings!

I would suggest you to double check the path again since the error itself indicates that the source was not found in the path "/Users/01_Salesforce/CICD/app/force-app".

Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,

Hi Vladimir,

Make sure you have some official files(like apex classes) in the force-app folder, then try it again.

Hi Vladimir,

I met this issue as well, I struggled very long time, finally figured out, you need to reinstall Salesforce cli(It's better to unintall plugins relative to salesforce if you use Visual Studio Code)

I found this is version issue, 7.81.0 works well

Before install
sfdx-cli/7.85.1-2fb9e41053 win32-x64 node-v12.18.3
After reinstall
sfdx-cli/7.81.0-7b953c80d1 win32-x64 node-v12.18.3


Regards
