Turns out @fgadaleta had to cd to root of repo, then problem disappeared. When fixing we should either gather metrics starting with root and not cwd or display some more meaningful error.

@pared Clearly for dvc metrics show -a it is implied that we are collecting metrics for the whole repo, and we indeed do that, but we don't take cwd into account when trying to read stage files, which is where the issue comes from.
