I just ran my npm and get this unknown error:
$ npm run dev

> ergo@0.1.0 dev
> next dev

[Error: UNKNOWN: unknown error, readlink 'C:\Users\beaur\OneDrive\Documents\programming\ergo\ergo\.next\package.json'] {
  errno: -4094,
  code: 'UNKNOWN',
  syscall: 'readlink',
  path: 'C:\\Users\\beaur\\OneDrive\\Documents\\programming\\ergo\\ergo\\.next\\package.json'
}


the package.json file has this inside:
{"type": "commonjs"}

which is all. I have no idea how to fix this, but I can't run my npm dev until it's fixed

Ah, that worked!
Thank you very much I truly appreciate the help
Why did that happen? A bug in the folder?

i think some weird cache issue, it may have gotten a bit confused when you saved a file

I'm sorry to bother you again. But another issue has come up
It seems like deleting the .next folder somehow deleted root layout?
I get this:
Image
But I do have a root layout for every page
which is my layout.tsx file
import './globals.css'
import type { Metadata } from 'next'
import { Inter } from 'next/font/google'
import Link from 'next/link'

const inter = Inter({ subsets: ['latin'] })

export const metadata: Metadata = {
  title: 'Create Next App',
  description: 'Generated by create next app',
}

export default function RootLayout({
  children,
}: {
  children: React.ReactNode
}) {
  return (
    <html lang="en">
      <body className={inter.className}>
          <nav className="navBar">
            <p id="icon" className='welcome'>Ergo</p>
            <Link href='/'>Home</Link>
            <Link href='/notes'>Notes</Link>
            <Link href='/tasks'>Tasks</Link>
          </nav>
        {children}
      </body>
    </html>
  )
}
Which just has my navbar
