I have tried all other solution from switching to nodev14.17.10 to installing libvips for linux (solution to a SO question) and rebuilding sharp, installing gatsby globally, running npm install --ignore-scripts=false

Welcome there,

It sounds like you did not run npm ci, before running npm run develop. Or, npm ci did not succeed (look at the full output for running it.

Hope this helps

npm ci gives no errors only npm run develop does, and i can run gatsby normally too. Plus, I can see sharp installed in the node_modules

this is what it says

Option 1:
rm -rf node_modules/

npm ci

if option 1 not work try option 2

Option 2:
npm cache clean --force

npm ci

Option 2 worked for me ,
let me know if it works:)

I have seen it happen a few times and (at least on Windows) what has worked for me is deleting the node_modules folder inside the client folder and then run npm install from inside the client folder. After, cd back out to the root and run the develop script (assuming everything else was installed already).
