Deploy fails - Error: Cannot find module 'gatsby-telemetry'

My build failed recently and I can’t understand why. The site runs fine locally. I haven’t changed any of the build settings. I keep getting an error that says it cannot find module ‘gatsby-telemetry’. Any advice on correcting this issue would be appreciated. Below are my build log and build/deploy settings.

Netlify site name: lucid-khorana-b0312f

Build & Deploy Settings:

I was able to find the fix. An article on Github explained that it is an issue with my package setup. Below is a link to the article. I had to delete my node_modules and my package-lock.json, then reinstall all packages. My deploy was successful after that.

Hi, @rfinkley. Thank you for taking the time to come back and share the solution!
