Package compiler fails when using Julia 1.7.1

Package compiler fails when using Julia 1.7.1. There is a problem with the use of data in the Images package, but not sure if this is the cause of the error. That warning message pops up a minute or so before the error occurs.

Anybody have any idea what is going wrong?

Can you try to fix this warning:

WARNING: both ImageMetadata and ImageAxes export "data"; uses of it in module Images must be qualified
fatal: error thrown and no exception handler available.

Search for data in your code and replace it with or depending on which one you need…

There are no uses of data, either or, anywhere in my code.

The uses are somewhere in the Images.jl package which I don’t control.

Should I file an issue on that github repo?

You can file an issue, but it would be helpful to provide a minimal example that shows the problem.

Since the error is thrown from LLVM it’s unlikely this has a simple fix. I would open an issue on the Julia repo. If possible, reducing the number of packages required to make this happen would be helpful.
