Error deploying Ethernaut on Local Network

Hello! I am trying to use ethernaut to get some ctf practice on local since it is much easier to manage there but I am having trouble going through the steps to successfully deploy it on a local network.

This is what my terminal returns after following step 6 of the guide:

ethernaut ➤ yarn deploy:contracts                                  git:master*
yarn run v1.22.19
$ yarn compile:contracts && node --experimental-json-modules client/scripts/deploy_contracts.mjs
$ cd contracts && hardhat clean && hardhat compile

Any help fixing this error would be much appreciated.
