Node:events module not found

After successfully updating my system, my bot started producing an error message. Additionally, I received a warning after installing a new version of Node through the shell. Despite having Node version 17.1.0, my search for a solution to the error message “cannot find module node:events” only led me to suggestions to upgrade to Node version 16.6.


Upon commencing the coding, an error was encountered.

Error: Cannot find module 'node:events'

this is my code

const Discord = require('discord.js');
const client = new Discord.Client();
client.on('ready', async () => {
   console.log('!!! => Discord bot has authenticated successfully...');

After upgrading to Node version 16.13, I am still facing the same issue. Is there anyone who can provide me with assistance?


Installation is required as it may not be readily accessible.

The website “” hosts a package called “events”.
