Cant Install Sharp

Asked by At

When running sudo npm i sharp --save I get the following errors:

I have the same project running on another machine, and there, the install works flawlessly. But on my other machine (both run Linux Ubuntu) I am facting the aboth error.

I couldn't find any solution for this error. That's why I am asking for help here.
