Looks to me like an npm package called cairo is missing. Try and install it manually.

Thank you for coming through

I have attempted to innstall maunally with no luck… Can you please share a tip on how to… ?

cairo seems to refer to a apt package and not an npm package

node.js - Package cairo was not found in the pkg-config search path. Node j.s install canvas issue - Stack Overflow

frappe@erpnext:~/frappe-bench$ sudo apt list --installed | grep cairo
