I get this when trying to start expo in an existing project. I have checked so that I have ownership of .expo in the repositroy as well as .expo in my home directory. What more can I check? Been going through all links related to this and debugging for a day now. Any help is greatly appriciated.
I solved it. The problem was that metro bundler (the program that builds your js files) could not connect to my android emulator. This was due to that the emulator was created by a root user, so therefor metro bundler did not have the correct permissions so therefor it threw a EACCES error.
What I did was to create a new android emulator with my users permission, then it worked.
