Unable to build plugin

Hi i was using the mattermost-plugin-starter-template as a template for my plugin, however I am unable to build the plugin. I ran ‘make deploy’ and i get this:
make: build/bin/manifest: Command not found
build/setup.mk:16: *** “Cannot parse id from plugin.json”. Stop.

I didnt make any changes to the build folder, and also realise there is no ‘build/bin/manifest’ too in the origin code when cloning, so is that the reason why the ‘cannot parse id from plugin.json’ is created? and if so why is it like that?

Thank you
