The -k and -m options are parsed by pytest. You are passing an empty string to -k and -m but pytest requires a non-empty argument. For example:

$ PYTHONPATH=$(pwd) python3 ipatests/ipa-run-tests -m "" -k "" 
ERROR: usage: -c [options] [file_or_dir] [file_or_dir] [...]
-c: error: argument -m: expected one argument


pytest -k "" -m ""
