Please provide any additional information below.
These are the args that are passed to the method. I got them using print statement. diff_file_path:- c:\users\shanka~1\appdata\local\temp\tmpzusqly, repository_info.base_path :- None,
base_dir :- ,
self.options.px :- None.

It looked like its failing bcz base_dir empty and repository_info.base_path :- None
