ELK 8.9.0 Caniuse Error during yarn build cause missing plugin build folder

I am seeing this error below during yarn build of our plugin. We had no build errors a few weeks ago.

We do not get a build anymore, we should see this output in the logs below from yarn build, but we do not anymore.

One the left a successful build and right the failed one

Hi @kbujold_wr,

Have you tried running npx update-browserlist-db@latest as suggested in the error to fix the failure?

This is what I had to do to fix the issue. It had to be done in kibana and not the plugin

   version "3.0.9"

Which branch of Kibana have you pulled from? I see a similar commit in the repo made back in October that was merged:

Kibana 8.9.0

So looking at the PR mentioend above I see it's tagged with the 8.11 release tag. Can you try pulling that branch and see if that resolves your issue?

We cannot up version right now

Hi @kbujold_wr,

If you're not able to update right not then you have a couple of options:

  1. Continue with the locally changed version that you have until you are ready to upgrade, at which point you'll be able to pull the fix with that version.
  2. Consider raising a PR contributing the fix as a backport for the version you are using.

Hope that helps!

We build our own kibana image which contains our external plugin so the problem is revolved for us. Others may hit this issue also though.
