Try upgrading node-gyp. I'm using 8.2.0 and it works for me. I'm also on Manjaro.

Nice, thanks @roman_r_m. That seems to have resolved the node-gyp errors. However, now I'm getting an error that wants me to rename files. I tried moving them as requested, but it still results in a similar error, but with a different file.

Try running npm run clean first

npm run clean fixes the moving files error.

After that, I tried npm update -g for the node-gyp issue since it reappeared.
Then I ran npm run clean again because the moving files error showed up again.
Then, I ran rm -rf node_modules && npm install because I got the error mentioned in this github issue

And finally, I was able successfully build Joplin! Thanks @roman_r_m :smiley:
