Let me preface this by saying I’ve been using expo for awhile (maybe since v15 or before). Suddenly, I can’t get a project started. I’ve tried uninstalling and re-installing but I always get stuck on

I’ve been running into issues like this the last 3-4 times I tried to get the latest expo working… I’m about to give up. What is the best way to 100% uninstall everything related to expo and react-native and then re-install?
Sorry you’re experiencing these issues! What OS are you on? Also, any chance you’re using NVM? I know that may cause some complexity and confusion.
Hey @adamjnav. Is there a way to do a print out like react-native info?
I did try to use nvm to switch from node v10 to node v8, which didn’t fix anything.
Should I remove nvm then?
expo diagnostics. I think filling this out will be the best route for us to figure out what’s going on: https://github.com/expo/expo-cli/issues/new
Was this ticket ever resolved? I am still having this issue.
It could be linked to this github issue
We’re looking into it currently. We’ll follow up in the github issue you linked when we have more information.
Thank you @adamjnav. I was able to get this to work by making sure I had a version of Expo open on either my phone or the emulator. The error message was a bit unclear…but this solves the issue on my end.
