do you have a MacBook Pro with a M1 processor? this fixed my issue:

sudo arch -x86_64 gem install ffi
arch -x86_64 pod install

Other Answers:

To those lazy like me, an alias for the arch -x86_64. Add it in your ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc:

 # Intel Platform
alias intel="arch -x86_64"

How to use:

$ intel pod install

I have MBP M1 Pro. I saw @rudyjdr answer and I modified it a bit.

in regular terminal:
sudo arch -x86_64 gem install ffi
then in the project root
cd ios && arch -x86_64 pod install && cd ../

I also had to delete Flipper lines in ios/Podfile to get the app running. (But that's probably not related to your problem)

Found the solution:
After running the above command "arch -x86_64 pod install" and if it didn't work and gave the above error.

Please run the following in the terminal which will fix the issue.
sudo xcode-select --switch /Applications/Xcode.app

do you have a MacBook Pro with a M1 processor? this fixed my issue:

sudo arch -x86_64 gem install ffi
arch -x86_64 pod install

this solved my problem! thanks

if this does not work after running these steps. run "arch -x86_64 pod install --repo-update". This worked for me!
