Bonjour Joakim,We've now added more precision to this lesson as to why you only use de or d' : indeed, "To express lacking <something>, you will use manquer de or d' + thing.You won't use the partitive articles (du, de l', de la, des) here, just as you wouldn't say "I lack the sugar" but simply "I lack sugar")."
Here is a link to the updated lesson with added examples:https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/manquer-de-thing-to-miss-lack-something
