Have you installed all needed packages to use makepkg? Look in the arch wiki to find out more.

g'day @arianhosseini and welcome :)

this error can occur with both yay and its predecessor yaourt.

are you using arch itself or a derivative such as manjaro?

try installing base-devel and then repeating your steps. if base-devel is already installed it will let you know.

Code:
sudo pacman -S base-devel

good luck
