How to solve Deployment Failure-assets:precompile

Issue: Deployment Failure: assets:precompile

      01 $HOME/.rbenv/bin/rbenv exec bundle exec rake assets:precompile
      01 Usage: yarn [options]
      01 yarn: error: no such option: --no-progress

I was trying to deploy rails 6 app on ec2 server using capistrano when precompile failure lead to whole deploymentt failure. I was facing this issue only in server so I started digging what I was doing different on server.

Turns out, On server my yarn command came from cmdtest. So I uninstalled cmdtest and installed yarn.The steps I followed is as below.

Configure the repository:

curl -sS | sudo apt-key add - && echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list

Install Yarn:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install yarn

Then I ran the cap:production:deploy and it worked.
