    @ManelAriapala the command you said installs or updates the Command line tools. xcrun needs to be installed. Whether VSCode uses it or Xcode, it doesn't matter.

xcode-select --install

This installs or updates Command Line Tools. It can be done manually too, by downloading the tools from Developer Website.

You might need to point it to the install location of the tools too.

sudo xcode-select -switch /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools

Then restart the Terminal/ VSCode.


Open Terminal, and run the following:

xcode-select --install This will download and install the Command Line Tools package and fix the problem.
