    I got the same issue. Solved it by:

     npm uninstall react-native-gesture-handler --save 

    And then

     npm install react-native-gesture-handler --save

    To resolve this issue, you need to install react-native-gesture-handler package:

     yarn add react-native-gesture-handler

    OR if you use npm

     npm install react-native-gesture-handler

    And the link the library in the specific project

     react-native link react-native-gesture-handler

    I hope it's helpful for you.
