It is not that self explaining, but the problem is with modules loading - 'EPiServer.Shell.Modules.ModuleFinder.GetModuleInDirectory'

So if one have this exception it means that some module assambly cannot be loaded and that must be added to web project

 

In my case web project was missing:

Install-Package EpiServer.Commerce.UI -Version 7.6.1 -ProjectName Web

    

But with the same exception it can probably be any other module assambly that is missing!
