Hi there,

I believe that this error occurs when Node.js is unable to find the specified module, which in this case appears to be the file index.js in the dist/config directory.

To troubleshoot this issue, you can try the following steps:

  • Check that the file path to the index.js file is correct. Make sure that the file exists in the specified location and that the path is spelled correctly.

  • Check that you have installed all the necessary dependencies for your project. The index.js file may be part of a dependency that you need to install in order for your project to work correctly.

If you are using a build tool like Webpack or Babel to compile your code, make sure that the build process is correctly generating the index.js file and that it is being placed in the correct location.

Check for any issues with file permissions. Make sure that you have the necessary permissions to access the index.js file and the dist/config directory.
