Gatsby deploy failed: Build script returned non-zero exit code: 127

I’ve tried deploying my Gatsby site from Netlify many times with the same error code 127 coming back. The site builds locally, and I get my site running locally with gatsby serve. The error states that the deploy failed during stage ‘building site’.

I have tried nuking and re-installing my node modules as well as clearing cache. I thought it may have something to do with my gatsby-config file, but everything looks okay there.

I’ve built and deployed this site many times before through Netlify, I can’t seem to pinpoint what change I made that would’ve caused it to stop building.

Please feel free to take a look at the repo for this project, https://github.com/dillonmorris91/ui-gems. Any help is appreciated, thank you!

hi there, have you used the forum search (try 127) :slight_smile: ? there are a number of people who have already encountered this issue. Usually it is either related to incorrect build commands depending on the SSG you are using or there being an issue with your package.json.

Give this a read through:

If you still can’t make it work, please summarize what you’ve tried, which results you had, any changes, your netlify instance name etc. Also a screenshot of your build settings would be useful.

I found this searching the build error I was seeing:

node: symbol lookup error: /opt/build/repo/node_modules/sharp/build/Release/sharp.node: undefined symbol: _ZNK4vips6VImage7pngsaveEPcPNS_7VOptionE

Full build log

In my case I think it was a mismatch between the Gatsby version ^2.13.39 and attempted bump to gatsby-plugin-sharp from ^2.2.9 to 2.2.18 in this automated PR from Dependabot. Upgrading all packages to latest exact versions with yarn upgrade -L --exact did the trick, but I expect just bumping Gatsby to ^2.14.0 would also have worked.

As to why I used --exact, I like pinning deps and automating dependency updates.
Had to post this link in a separate post because since I am new I am only allowed a max of 2 links per post :frowning:

hey ricky, the limit on links is only for new users. If you post a couple more times that restriction will be automatically lifted. :+1:
