How to solve Jest storybook test error “cannot find interopRequireDefault.js”

What caused this error?

I wanted to update my current branch with the master branch. In the process, I encountered a merge conflict with the storybook snapshot test. The incoming test file had been updated with new tests. I accepted both changes without duly reviewing them and that must have caused some data to be repeated or redundant. hhhhh

What I tried to fix the issue?

Usually, when I get errors like this that have a package can’t be found error, I delete and re-install node_modules, package-lock.json. In this case, It did not help

What Solved the Error?

Deleting the Jest cache directory. I added this command to my package.json and ran it.

“test”: “react-scripts test — clearcache”


Jest stores information in the cache to improve test performance, I suspect the merge with new data must have clashed with the cache data, thereby confusing Jest.
