Im having trouble deploying this next.js app

Hello y’all!!!

First off I want to say that I didnt check all netlify doc yet. :skull_and_crossbones:

I want to deploy this page but I keep getting this error:

If anyones recognizes the error would you tell me what do I have to read?


Hey there, @z0rdian :wave:

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Netlify Forums! Can you please share a link to your site as well as your build settings? This will help us look into what you are encountering further.

Hello, @hillary :wave:
Thank you for your answer!

This is the github repository where the page is:

also this is the package.json file

Hey @z0rdian,

What happens when you remove .npmrc file from your repo? Since you’re using Node 16 (and Netlify uses that as the default), I believe you don’t need that file. If you do wish to set a Node Version, there are additional ways available too, but let’s try to determine if that’s the error here.

Hey @hrishikesh. I deleted the file and .gitignore. Populated netlify.toml with:

package = "@netlify/plugin-nextjs"

command = "yarn next build"
publish = ".next"

and worked!<
