My ionic pro cloud build fails because of 'cordova prepare' error?

For some reason my builds are failing when I run ionic build or when I push to the build to the ionic cloud. Here is the output in the cloud:

Here’s the output when I run ionic build --verbose (it seems to snag on cordova prepare):
