The build is not running after updating expo-cli

I get the following error: “ConfigUtils(…).configFilenameAsync is not a function”

I had updated the expo-cli to the latest version and I started getting this error. I have tried many things since then such as reinstalling expo-cli to 3.4.1 (as you see in the screenshot) or updating/reinstalling node and npm and it is not working.

After a long time trying many different things someone shared with me a solution in expo cli’s github which is installing the version 3.5.0 of expo cli. I had tried versions 3.8.X, 3.4.1, 3.3.X, and none of these had worked.

Hi

Please see this post:

I’m getting the same error on a Mac.

I have a number of projects that have been working just fine, but now I cant start any of them or create a new project.

I wanted to have a clean start with the new cli so did a new install:

sudo npm install -g expo-cli

My errors are:

Should I install an older version?

OK. Weird. Just ran npm install -g expo-cli and for some reason, after reboots and multiple tries, it works.

Maybe something happening to the source code for a while. Anyway, I’m back to work. :slight_smile:
