I cannot deploy next js site to netlify due to npm err

Hello everyone. I need help understanding this error.

When I deploy a site to Netlify I am always getting this error:

Can anyone help me understand what is happening?

Are you using private npm modules or repositories, by any chance?

I am not sure. I can check my Package-lock.Json file to see that?

I don’t see anything strange from a glance but I’ll take a better look tomorrow.

Whatever’s happening, it doesn’t seem related to Netlify. I’ve downloaded your repository and I get the same error locally.

I fixed this on my machine by removing package-lock.json and running npm install as described here.
