Remote development with VS Code

I'm running Alpine 3.12 with the latest 64-bit kernel. Installed VS extension for remote server ssh connections and by trying to connect, I see that the process has downloaded a folder ".vscode-server" on my remote server, which means that the connection happened, but after loading for some time I receive this message "The remote host may not meet VS Code Server's prerequisites for glibc and libstdc++". I did some googling on this, and I see that a few people were having trouble as they didn't have enough space on their server storage to install some libraries, but this is not the case for me. The extension itself provides me with this link explaining that there could be problems for Alpine based systems, but it should work anyways, but I can't quite find the problem. Maybe someone has faced this issue and can guide me to the solution?
