Suggestions are very welcome.

that looks like the install command for Termux for Android, make sure you select the β€œmacOS” tab on the docs: Meshtastic-python installation | Meshtastic

Unfortunately, I have already tried that.
Here is the full output according to the instructions in the docs.

What a strange error. Can’t say I know the solution, so throwing out some ideas:

if the folder /private/tmp/pip-install-5lsu1l6m/ still exists after installation fail;

  • make sure this folder name changes for each install (otherwise try renaming it);
  • if coverage-6.0.2-py3.8-macosx-10.14-arm64.egg really exists inside;

You could try a manual install, it is more verbose and easier to follow:

git clone https://github.com/peplin/pygatt.git
cd pygatt
sudo python3 setup.py install

Thank you for your suggestions,
that directory wasn’t there.
Manual install went well and I was able to install Meshtastic without any issues, and I’m able to use it.
I appreciate your help regarding this topic.
Thanks!
