ERROR: "Gather <distribution name> stopped with unknown error."

Additional Information

In this case the problem was that the Source Root was incorrect.  A change has been made to make this error more clear in newer versions of code. The error should now be Error: "Source root folder name cannot be null / The application object cannot be placed outside the source root context".  This should make it more clear for those with this configuration issue in the future.
