Error on Build (node build/build.js)

Hello am having the following error when trying to build the app, the error seems to appear when the command node ./build/build.js is executed, the error that appears is as

      throw new ERR_REQUIRE_ESM(filename, parentPath, packageJsonPath);

Error [ERR_REQUIRE_ESM]: Must use import to load ES Module: /home/user/Desktop/projects/fw7/msomi/node_modules/cpy/index.js
require() of ES modules is not supported.
require() of /home/user/Desktop/projects/fw7/msomi/node_modules/cpy/index.js from /home/user/Desktop/projects/fw7/msomi/build/build.js is an ES module file as it is a .js file whose nearest parent package.json contains "type": "module" which defines all .js files in that package scope as ES modules.
Instead rename index.js to end in .cjs, change the requiring code to use import(), or remove "type": "module" from /home/user/Desktop/projects/fw7/msomi/node_modules/cpy/package.json.
