Installation problem during "php bakery build-assets -c"

I get the following error in a ubuntu server when running php bakery build-assets -c at the end of the installation:

I tried to access the http version of the site to check if it might be available in spite of the errors, but currently nothing is showing up. What could be wrong?

Edit: I changed the .env from production to default, ran a npm install from the build directory, then a php bakery bake without the -c and I can now access the site, but the php bakery bake -c continues to fail with the same error.

The -c switch tells the tooling to generate compiled (i.e. bundle files together and minify). Running under production mode does the same thing.

Irritatingly gulp-bundle-uf-assets is the error source, and its currently in an unworkable state (I’m almost done with a major rewrite, but its a breaking change which will come along with UF4.2 is everything goes to plan).

Something worth trying would be updating Node. Its possible something is using a newer feature (since the line its complaining about is literally just importing another library.

Edit: Updating node did the trick. Everything is working now. Thanks!

That was wayyyy out of date btw. Current stable version of node is 10.
