"swift package generate-xcodeproj" results in manifest parse error

I'm new to Swift and the Package Manager. I'm following a tutorial that generates the Xcode project file, but I get errors when I run "swift package generate-xcodeproj" (or "swift package update" for that matter). Below is the output.

It looks like it doesn't recognise the 'uuid_string_t' type in hfs_format.h header file.

Any ideas on how to solve this? I'm using Xcode 10.2 and Swift 5 on macOS 10.14.4. My Xcode Command Line Tools setting under the Location Preferences tab is set to 10.2.

It sounds like the headers you have in /usr/local/include/ aren't compatible with what's in your SDK. The SDK has its own <uuid/uuid.h>, but by putting alternate headers in a standard include path you've shadowed the SDK's copy.

Thank you for enlightening me. I moved the alternate header and it worked fine.
