RangeError: Invalid array buffer length - Meteor JS

I was just coding (Meteor JS) when this error started to crop up, and I'm not even sure what caused it:

const ui8 = new Uint8Array(size);

I've tried to
npm cache clear
but it hasn't helped. What could be causing this error? Is it my code or is it something else?


I'm in windows 10 and I also get this error after meteor started auto updating.

So here's what I did:

1) I remove dirs node_modules and .meteor/local:

rm -rf node_modules
rm -rf .meteor/local 

2) meteor npm install

3) run meteor with: meteor


After trying the above and running meteor it worked but then after some time it started thworing same error. So I read somewhere to uninstall and install meteor again in Windows and that solved the error. Maybe try unistalling and installing it again if facing this bug
