Flutter, no such module ‘Firebase’ when construction on ios

As this is a flutter error, I wish to find a clean fix from my terminal without going into xcode configurations

the list of commands below used to get it done for me before i upgraded flutter to 3.13.4

List of commands that I used before building or running a new clean build after updating my code

    delete ios/Pods
    delete ios/Podfile.lock
    delete pubspec.lock
    flutter clean
    flutter pub get
    pod deintegrate
    pod repo remove trunk
    sudo gem install cocoapods-deintegrate cocoapods-clean
    pod cache clean --all
    sudo gem uninstall cocoapods
    sudo gem install cocoapods
    pod setup
    pod install --verbose
    pod update --verbose
    flutter build ios-framework --output=Flutter
and as well i did not forget to restart xcode & intellij idea, and i refuse the notion that restarting my mac might fix it.

My flutter doctor

my AppDelegate.swift (this used to work perfectly)

import UIKit
import Flutter
import Firebase
import FirebaseMessaging

@objc class AppDelegate: FlutterAppDelegate {
  override func application(
    _ application: UIApplication,
    didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?
  ) -> Bool {
    GeneratedPluginRegistrant.register(with: self)
    return super.application(application, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: launchOptions)
  override func application(_ application: UIApplication,
  didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken deviceToken: Data) {

    Messaging.messaging().apnsToken = deviceToken
    print("Token: \(deviceToken)")
    didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken: deviceToken)

This is my Podfile
