Sorry, I modified my comment. I am getting an error with --projectRoot. I was trying on my own repo. I'll be cloning your repo and then let you know if the problem persists.
I'm using the unreleased react-native 0.59 in this tutorial, some dependencies got a major bump so maybe there are some differences if you are using an older version.
