Cannot find module ‘fs/promises’ Electron JS

I experienced this issue a few days ago as well. I realized that trying to fix another issue, I deleted the node_modules folder and the package-lock.json file, then run the npm install command. This made the build to fail with ‘fs/promises’. There are 2 solutions to this issue:

  1. Download the latest stable Node version. This should have the ‘fs/promises’ module and will fix the issue.
  2. Delete the node_modules folder and bring back the old package-lock.json file to ensure that the package versions remain the same. Then run the npm install command and the issue should be fixed.
