Updating from Meteor 1.5.1 to Broke app

I updated my meteor project and got the following error (truncated the long path to make it easier to read):

W20180326-11:48:32.732(-4)? (STDERR) /[path_to_app]/.meteor/local/build/programs/server/boot.js:475

W20180326-11:48:32.784(-4)? (STDERR)     at /[path_to_app]/.meteor/local/build/programs/server/boot.js:470:1

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling underscore.js, but that did nothing. I’ve never had a problem with it before.

I also updated the app to meteor 1.6.1 and still got the same error.

Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?

Have you tried a meteor reset and fresh npm install?

This looks like a broken build to me, so a reset should (hopefully) fix it

same problem:

“meteor reset and fresh npm install” did not help

I did a fresh install of meteor and ported my code to it. I added my meteor packages back in one at a time, and that seemed to fix it. There must be a better way, but so far that seems to be the only thing that worked for me.

I got the same issue. So I decided to update just to Meteor 1.4

Has anyone fixed this issue without having to port code to a fresh install? I’m having the same problem starting at 1.4, and can’t upgrade meteor at all because of it
