Error In Runtime From Terser During Build –prod


I have updated everything Angular and am now getting the error below (4x) when I
“Build –prod”

No errors if I remove –prod

I have no real code in this app. It is just a starter shell.

Any suggestions on what to look into?

It seems to be a problem with the recently released version 3.16 of Terser, here’s the related issue in Terser and in Terser as a Webpack plugin.

In this VueJS issue they recommended to downgrade it to version 3.14.1. You can do it looking for the line in package.json containing "terser" and pin it as follows:

    "terser": "3.14.1",
