Getting error while creating a new build

I’m trying to run a build for a new React Native project through eas but getting the following errors:

eas-cli version: eas-cli@0.53.0

I have a monorepo with the app present in packages/app

Please let me know if I need to change anythinh

I have the exact same issue :confused:

Did you manage to fix it? :eyes:

run expo-cli doctor and you will almost certainly see some warnings. follow up on those to resolve the issue

Unfortunately, running expo-cli doctor didn’t help, since I got: 🎉 Didn't find any issues with the project!

Hi @bouga

You also have the app in a monorepo? Have you set it up according to the monorepo docs?

If that doesn’t help, can you try creating a new app (not in a monorepo, to simply things a bit) and install your dependencies and try building it?
If that fails the same way, try figuring out which dependency/ies is/are causing the issue. Maybe post your dependencies and devDependencies here if you can reproduce the problem in a new app, but can’t track down the problematic dependencies.
