TypeError: cb.apply is not a function

I had a very similar problem on CI, but it works normally on my local machine (Node 13). In the CI, when building the project on CircleCI or on AppCenter with a code that I already released two months ago it throws the error below. It just does not make sense, it's like node had broken dynamically.

I tested the same code with node 10, 12 and 14, but now it works just with node 10 (10.22.0).

The error I had:

        if (cb) cb.apply(this, arguments)

TypeError: cb.apply is not a function

> Task :app:bundleReleaseJsAndAssets FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':app:bundleReleaseJsAndAssets'.
> Process 'command 'node'' finished with non-zero exit value 1


What solved my problem was to add a resolution to the package.json to do not allow any lib to use a version of graceful-fs that is before "4.2.4". Now it works again with node 12.

PS: Don't forget to run yarn or npm run install to update your .lock. If this solution does not work for you, please add a comment to this thread related to this problem on Node 12.18.3

  "devDependencies": {
  "resolutions": {
    "graceful-fs": "4.2.4"

I got this too today when doing a build. (running node 12.8.3)

I reinstalled the follow package:

npm install graceful-fs --save-dev

This solved the above problem.

An Ubuntu 20.04 user here with node 16.0.0. I was getting the same error when I would run:

> npx create-react-app [my app]

I found that I had to reinstall create-react-app (remove it from node_modules first) to solve it.

> npm install create-react-app
