I have tried npm install -g lerna, then run npm install again still get this error, wondering if anyone encountered this too?

Lerna is installed with the dependencies so you shouldn't have to install it globally. In fact, maybe try to uninstall it globally to see if it helps?

Also what is the error message if you manually run npx lerna bootstrap --force-local --no-ci?

Got here

None of these errors makes any sense so it's hard to tell. Also make sure you use node 12 and npm 6.

Thanks, I was using node 15.x, I thought it's fine, as the doc suggested node 10+, after switched to 12.x

then I run npx lerna bootstrap --force-local --no-ci, it takes a looooooong time, then get error:

make: *** [Release/obj.target/sharp/src/common.o] Error 1

after do some search, brew install vips, after installed a lot of dependencies

then run npx lerna bootstrap --force-local --no-ci, took 1-2 hour.

got another error,

I gave it up, maybe I'll try it on Linux sometime

Yes, not sure why even the most basic things are not working for you. Perhaps it's not compatible with macOS M1.
