Copy code
{
  "name": "notes",
  "version": "0.1.0",
  "private": true,
  "scripts": {
    "test": "sst test",
    "start": "sst start",

solved! @thdxr
The node binary used for scripts is /snap/bin/node but npm is using /snap/node/5485/bin/node itself. Use the
--scripts-prepend-node-path` option to include the path for the node binary npm was executed with.`
thank you for your consideration
