Current Behavior

After upgrading Expo to 32.0.0, I get the following error:

I check out this issue: #5293

Tried to delete react-native-gesture-handler with no luck.

I use the latest versions of Expo, RN, react-navigation and npm.

run expo init to create a new project with the tabs template and notice that it works as expected with the same version of expo and react-navigation. look at the package.json there and compare with yours. it looks like you installed react-native-gesture-handler manually in your project, remove it and remove your package-lock.json and delete node_modules and reinstall. if that doesn't fix it then please share a reproducible example in a new issue as per the issue template, thanks!

The error came before I manually installed it. I uninstalled it again now but I get the same error. Also, this is the output from the new project as you suggested (it launched without problems):

You asked to share an example. What kind of example? This is an error that I believe happens behind the scenes and out of my control so I have no idea what to upload.

it is entirely under your control, as i mentioned it works on a new project as expected. an example is a runnable minimal example - see for more info

if doing what i described above doesn't work then sorry you need to share a mcve and create a new issue
