Error: Package exports for ‘/app/node_modules/uuid’ do not define a valid ‘.’ target

So some ungodly reason when I implement the following snippet:

import { Listener, OrderCreatedEvent, Subjects } from '@dc_microurb/common';
import { Message } from 'node-nats-streaming';
import { queueGroupName } from './queue-group-name';
import { expirationQueue } from '../../queues/expiration-queue';

export class OrderCreatedListener extends Listener<OrderCreatedEvent> {
  subject: Subjects.OrderCreated = Subjects.OrderCreated;
  queueGroupName = queueGroupName;

  async onMessage(data: OrderCreatedEvent['data'], msg: Message) {
    const delay = new Date(data.expiresAt).getTime() - new Date().getTime();
    console.log('Waiting this many milliseconds to process the job:', delay);

    await expirationQueue.add(


In particular the first argument to expirationQueue.add(), {orderId:, }, I get the following error in my terminal:

I upgraded my Node version to v14.16.1.


This is most likely a Node issue.

It has already happen in the past with uuid. An issue regarding node v13 also have been opened back then, to report a similar problem.

Even tho it’s not a durable solution, try downgrading your Node version and open a ticket on the uuid Github repository.
