Compiling Ringo firmware with PlatformIO broken

Hi there,

following the guide for building and modifying the Ringo-Firmware and using the most recent versions of VS Code and PlatformIO on a fresh install I encounter an error when trying to compile the firmware. Unfortunately I cannot attach the log or post it in it’s entirety due to the length, so I posted only the relevant error below. However this can be replicated by doing a fresh install of the required tools on a VM or another PC.

Any idea why this could be happening?
