Hi there!

I’ve tried to deploy my website for some time now. This is the error, i really cant find any information about it on the web or here.

This is with Nuxt.

hmm, definitely seems like a code error - seemingly not in code you wrote.

Does this build locally?

Yes, it does. Both yarn dev and yarn generate. Isn’t there a log file from netlify that i can look at which file the error is at?

Nobody know what the problem is?

i’m sorry, devpaps - i don’t have any further advice for you at the moment.

have you tried asking in one of the dedicated places for nuxt support?
