Error when installing NX monorepo with Angular CLI decorator

I am trying to deploy and Angular Universal app in a NX monorepo onto app platform, but I get the follow error during in the postinstall step after yarn install when the NX monorepo executes its decorate-angular-cli.js. It is trying to move a sock file in a cache directory inside node_modules from what I understand. I’m definitely not an expert at NX and am starting to wonder if I’m in over my head, help!
