Gatsby StaticQuery stopped working

Hi Guys,

I have a Gatsby site that has been running fine up until Friday 24th July. Now I am getting the below error. If I refresh the page the query resolves. The site works fine when I run it locally in dev. If anyone is experiencing something similar I would love some advice.

Error: The result of this StaticQuery could not be fetched.

This is likely a bug in Gatsby and if refreshing the page does not fix it, please open an issue in

hi there, that’s frustrating. Did you reach out to gatsby as described in the error message? Seems like it is a bit of a known issue :thinking:

I had the same problem. I updated all my npm dependencies and that fixed it.

Hi, @willmcl. Thank you for sharing this solution here!

import React from 'react'
import { graphql, useStaticQuery } from 'gatsby'
import Img from 'gatsby-image'

const Image = ({ fileName, alt, style, className }) => {
  const { allImageSharp } = useStaticQuery(graphql`
    query Image {
      allImageSharp {
        nodes {
          fluid {

  const fluid = allImageSharp.nodes.find(
    (n) => n.fluid.originalName === fileName

  return (
        imgStyle={{ position: 'relative' }}

export default Image
            style={{ width: '100%' }}

Very simple image component, Its working fine in gatsby and not working netlifycms admin
