Same here. I tried following some other methods and can’t seem to find the right combination of things.

Can you make sure that /usr/local/bin is in your $PATH? First check by doing an:

echo $PATH

to see what it is. If /usr/local/bin is not in your $PATH, add it into either your .bash_profile or .bashrc in your home directory.

It is definitely in my path. I just went to update Ionic again and… same thing. Appears to be an issue with “spawn-sync”.

Same issue here - any progress?

Same here. happened after updating. :frowning:
