SyntaxError: Unexpected token {

How should I solve this error?

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

The problem is that your version of Node.js is too old and doesn’t support the latest features.

elasticdump requires at least node.js v8+, so you should upgrade node.js and then it should work.

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
