Migration React Native v0.65 - Fastlane build fail for iOS "Archive failed" (Exit Status: 65) only on CircleCI

Working on migrating a mobile app from React Native 0.59.0 to 0.60.5 and adding support to AndroidX. The updated app works fine on both iOS and Android locally and the CircleCI build for Android is working fine. We use Fastlane and Gym to build and release our app.

The CircleCI build for iOS fails on CircleCI during the archive step. When running bundle exec fastlane ios build_release locally it works fine. The same way, we’ve tried archiving the app through XCode (same version as in CCI 10.2.1) locally and it also works fine.

The complete log of the build step can be seen here: https://gist.github.com/vincentnavetat/17adcdf4cd410f52e30e410d457d656f

The xcodebuild command that fails:
set -o pipefail && xcodebuild -workspace ./MyApp.xcworkspace -scheme MyApp -destination ‘generic/platform=iOS’ -archivePath /Users/distiller/Library/Developer/Xcode/Archives/2019-09-23/MyApp\ 2019-09-23\ 02.23.13.xcarchive archive | tee /Users/distiller/Library/Logs/gym/MyApp-MyApp.log | xcpretty
