The solution is to use alternative plugin definition syntax. Here are the steps
to make it work:
set -g @pluginlines from tmux config file
in the config file define the plugins in the following way:
# List of plugins set -g @tpm_plugins ' \ tmux-plugins/tpm \ tmux-plugins/tmux-sensible \ tmux-plugins/tmux-resurrect \ ' # Initialize TMUX plugin manager (keep this line at the very bottom of tmux.conf) run '~/.tmux/plugins/tpm/tpm'
Reload TMUX environment so TPM is sourced:
$ tmux source /path/to/my_tmux.conf
The plugins should now be working.

This problem is because tmux's
run-shell command runs a shell which doesn't read from user configs, thus tmux installed in a brew prefix (e.g.
/usr/local/bin) will not be found.
The solution is to find your brew prefix
> echo "$(brew --prefix)/bin" /opt/homebrew/bin
And prepend it to the
PATH environment variable
set-environment -g PATH "/opt/homebrew/bin:/bin:/usr/bin"
