That's the issue. You must unzip it into a path other than ~/Downloads/...

The keyword "AppTranslocation" hints that the bundle was started from the Download location or the DMG.

1. I downloaded the all-in-one.
2. macos (12.4) unzipped the all-in-one bundle into a ~/Downloads/Squeak6 directory, containing the fat binary mac app bundle containing the other VMs and the Mac VM in ~/Squeak/Squeak6/Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app/Contents/ [http://Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app/Contents/]
3. I moved this to my Squeak directory, giving me ~/Squeak/Squeak6/Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app [http://Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app] et al
4. I copied the image and changes file into a ~/Squeak/Squeak6.0 directory as trunk6-64.image/changes
5. I dropped the image on the ~/Squeak/Squeak6/Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app [http://Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app] bundle and got the translocation
6. I opened the app using the command line from ~/Squeak/Squeak6.0:
        open trunk6-64.image -a ~/Squeak/Squeak6/Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app [http://Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app] --stdout=`tty` --stderr=`tty`
    and got the translocation
7. I ran the VM binary from the command line:
        ../Squeak6/Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak [http://Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak] trunk6-64.image
    and got the warning about no sources in ../Squeak6

Please throw away the app or DMG, download again and MOVE the app somewhere else, and then start.
This precludes translocation.

I'm not using the DMG.  I downloaded the all-in-one, and moved it.

(this is unavoidable.)

Have you got a pointer to the relevant documentation?  Do I have to duplicate the Squeak6 directory?

Best regards
