Electron-forge flatpak maker exits with status code 1

When I try to run electron-forge make with @electron-forge/maker-flatpak, it fails with an error:

An unhandled error has occurred inside Forge:
An error occured while making for target: flatpak
flatpak failed with status code 1
Error: flatpak failed with status code 1

    at Process.ChildProcess._handle.onexit (internal/child_process.js:287:5)

This is my electron-forge config:

module.exports = {
  packagerConfig: {},
  makers: [ {name: '@electron-forge/maker-flatpak'} ],

Any ideas?
