iOS framework addition failed due to cocoapods installation failure even after reinstalling!

I’ve searched this, followed the suggested steps, and no matter what…I cannot seem to get an xcworkspace file.

I’ve gem uninstalled, gem installed…I removed my post-build script, idk…nothing works!

Every time I try to build I get that error. I desperately need this resolved, there is a tremendous amount of work to do, not being able to build and deploy is killer.

Thanks for anyone that can help.
