CircleCI fails to open Xcode

I am using yarn to build a react native ios app. In my config.yml I’m using the CircleCI Mac images with Xcode 12.5.1 . When I invoke the yarn command, I get the following error

The application cannot be opened for an unexpected reason, error=Error Domain=NSOSStatusErrorDomain Code=-10827 "kLSNoExecutableErr: The executable is missing" UserInfo={_LSLine=3762, _LSFunction=_LSOpenStuffCallLocal}
error Command failed: open /Applications/Xcode-12.5.1.app/Contents/Developer/Applications/Simulator.app --args -CurrentDeviceUDID A8176C67-F1D0-4517-A6B5-A3495829BB1D
The application cannot be opened for an unexpected reason, error=Error Domain=NSOSStatusErrorDomain Code=-10827 "kLSNoExecutableErr: The executable is missing" UserInfo={_LSLine=3762, _LSFunction=_LSOpenStuffCallLocal}

I’m not changing anything with regards to the Xcode executable, I’m just using the defaults on the system. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

We are also running into this, and the difference was upgrading from xcode 12.3.0 → 12.5.1

same here, the error occurred after updating to RN 0.65.1 and to xcode 12.5.1, any update on this?
