GatsbyDatoCmsFluid_tracedSVG query failed

I’m using
Gatsby-Image 2.2.23
gatsby-source-datocms 2.1.15

The GraphQL query from /Users/wildpow/Documents/GitHub/new-esc-gatsby/src/pages/index.js failed.

  Cannot find module 'gatsby-plugin-sharp'

Readme is not clear that I need this plug-in. So I installed it and added it to my gatsby-config.js.
Now the error is

success open and validate gatsby-configs - 0.038 s
⠋ load plugins

Well I upgraded these packages and the error went away !?!

gatsby from 2.13.72 --> 2.15.28
react 16.9.0 --> 16.10.1
react-dom 16.9.0 --> 16.10.1

Wasn’t the updates that did it. gatsby-plugin-sharp needs to be listed as a dependency in your project for the _tracedSVG fragments to work. PR #80 to update README.

Are you on Ubuntu?

Try doing this, it fixed that issue for me:

Get the latest release here: and build it.

Then I had to follow these steps to make it work:

I’m using a Mac. My problem, I believe, was a documentation issue. I was unaware I needed gatsby-plug-sharp listed as a dependency to use the _tracedSVG fragment, that’s is why I made the PR #80 to update the docs for anyone else that may run into the same issue.
