python3 is installed in my mac (Apple M1 Pro, macOS Monterey 12.3).

$ python3 --version
Python 3.9.12

I also tried with –python option with paths below.

$ which -a python3
/opt/homebrew/bin/python3
/usr/bin/python3
/opt/homebrew/bin/python3
npm i --python="/usr/bin/python3"
npm i --python="/opt/homebrew/bin/python3"

But it doesn’t work

I think the ‘deasync’ package is requiring python since only projects containing that package in package-lock.json make this error.

How can I solve it?

Solution

I resolved this issue by downgrading node version (to v14.19.1).
