I had the same problem as you. Build works locally but netlify build fails.
Here’s how I solved it:

  • check the version of node and npm installed on your computer
  • set the environment variables in netlify: NODE_VERSION with value of the version installed on your computer. Do the same with NPM_VERSION

Hi @shelcia and @dhatGuy :wave:t6: welcome to the Netlify forums! I’m glad you’re here. @dhatGuy Thank you for providing that solution. Please give it a go and let us know if it helped resolve your issues. Happy building! :netliconfetti: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

How do i setup that ?

on your computer, run node -v to get the node version and npm -v for npm version.
then read here on how to create variables

like this ?

# Production context: all deploys from the Production branch
# set in your site’s Branches settings in the UI will inherit
# these settings. You can define environment variables
# here but we recommend using the Netlify UI for sensitive
# values to keep them out of your source repository.
  publish = "output/"
  command = "make publish"
  environment = { NODE_VERSION = "16.17.0" }

# Here is an example of how to define context-specific
# environment variables. Be mindful when using this
# option and avoid committing sensitive values to public
# source repositories.
  NOT_PRIVATE_ITEM = "not so secret"

# Branch Deploy context: all deploys that are not from
# a pull/merge request or from the Production branch
# will inherit these settings.
  NODE_ENV = "development"

# Dev context: environment variables set here 
# are available for local development environments 
# run using Netlify Dev. These values can be 
# overwritten on branches that have a more specific 
# branch context configured.
  NODE_ENV = "development"

# Specific branch context: all deploys from
# this specific branch will inherit these settings.
[context.staging.environment] # β€œstaging” is a branch name
  NODE_ENV = "development"

this should work. If it didn’t, I will suggest you use Netlify UI

Hiya @dhatGuy :wave:t6: thanks for elaborating on the fix. I appreciate it. (:

Not working unfortunately, can you please elaborate more
