Yes, everyone replying that you have the CLT installed, check if it’s actually the correct one. Because apparently there is a bug that makes Xcode report that the CLTs are installed *without* checking whether it is the correct version.
At least the command "xcode-select —install” gave me this while I knew I still had Xcode 12 CLTs installed and not a newer one (with the 11.0 SDK).

In Xcode itself I actually do not see the CLT listed at all, only the simulators.

So I also had to use the installer.
