Hi there @heysuneel,

It sounds like that your Node.js version might be outdated. You can check this with the following command:

node -v

Starting from Node.js version 12.14.1, you should not get that error.

You could use NVM to install specific Node.js versions:

Let me know how it goes. Regards, Bobby
