.xcodeproj corrupted
If you ever come across such a similar error or your xcode complains the project cannot be read because it can't parse it...
xcodebuild[25580:465966] Error Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain Code=3840 "Unexpected character / at line 1" UserInfo={NSDebugDescription=Unexpected character / at line 1, kCFPropertyListOldStyleParsingError=Error Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain Code=3840 "Missing ';' on line 1095" UserInfo={NSDebugDescription=Missing ';' on line 1095}}
Do, actually check the line in your project.pbxproj. Mine was...
HEADER_SEARCH_PATHS = "$(inherited)""$(SRCROOT)/../node_modules/react-native-i18n/ios";
and I corrected it to...
HEADER_SEARCH_PATHS = (
"$(inherited)",
"$(SRCROOT)/../node_modules/react-native-i18n/ios"
);

After completed a merge this file has become corrupted. <<<<<<<<<<<<<HEAD and other traces of the merge were scattered throughout the file. After deleting everything I could find, it still didnt work. Here is the error I was getting I'm inferring from the error that the issue was on line 44 but couldn't find anything. Can you tell me from the error where you think the problem would have been?

_error Failed to build iOS project. We ran "xcodebuild" command but it exited with error code 74. To debug build logs further, consider building your app with Xcode.app, by opening wild5.xcodeproj
