I am receiving the following error message during a pull from my scratch org:

ERROR running force:source:pull:  Entity of type 'Layout' named 'null-Community Member Layout' cannot be found

It is easy to reproduce this:

  1. create a default scratch org:
  2. change something on the User's Community Member Layout, for example remove a field.
  3. try to run sfdx force:source:pull

I am not sure if it is related to our configuration:

"orgName": "TestOrg",
  "edition": "Developer",
  "features": ["Communities", "ContactsToMultipleAccounts", "ServiceCloud"],
  "settings": {
    "orgPreferenceSettings": {
      "networksEnabled": true,
      "s1DesktopEnabled": true,
      "socialProfilesEnable": true
    "quoteSettings": {
      "enableQuote": true
    "opportunitySettings": {
      "enableOpportunityTeam": true
      "enableEntitlements": true
      "enableLiveAgent": true
      "enableOmniChannel": true,
      "enableOmniSkillsRouting": true

It is not really a solution, but you can .forceignore this file by adding this line:

null-Community Member Layout

It is important to do not specify the path of the file.
