When can we expect an upgrade to Amazon image "aws/codebuild/amazonlinux2-x86_64-standard:2.0" with nodejs runtime version 14?

As per a communication received from AWS, we need to update our application from CDK v1 to v2. Since the minimum requirement to do this update is we need node js version>=14 which is currently v12 for Amazon image "aws/codebuild/amazonlinux2-x86_64-standard:2.0". Hence we cannot upgrade the CDK version to v2 until there is an upgarde available . We would want to know when can we expect upgrade to the mentioned image for runtime nodejs version 14.

Hi,

As you know that Nodesj v12 is the latest for Amazon Linux 2 x86_64 standard:2.0 and v14 being latest version on nodejs.

To view the latest versions you can consult the attached document[1].

Regrettably, node js version>=14 is currently not made available for Amazon Linux 2 x86_64 standard:2.0, I am certain that the internal team is constantly working towards releasing the nodes v14 for the above mentioned Image. I would also advised you to keep an eye on what’s new for future releases: https://aws.amazon.com/new/

I hope this helps.

  • Hello, Thanks for the update. Also is there any workaround which can be implemented until then, so that we can still upgrade to CDK v2.

Hi there,

Upon doing further testing and replication on my side, I was able to install nodejs.x86_64 version 14.19.3-1 successfully by using repo https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_14.x and then installed aws-cdk@2.28.1 as can be seen below:

sudo su -

amazon-linux-extras install epel -y

yum install curl -y

curl -sL https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_14.x | sudo bash -

yum install nodejs -y

npm install -g aws-cdk

Confirmed that nodejs is installed:

[root@ip-172-31-54-73 ~]# yum list installed nodejs

Loaded plugins: extras_suggestions, langpacks, priorities, update-motd

208 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

Installed Packages

nodejs.x86_64 2:14.19.3-1nodesource @nodesource

[root@ip-172-31-54-73 ~]#

Confirmed that cdk is installed:

[root@ip-172-31-54-73 ~]# cdk --version

2.28.1 (build d035432)

[root@ip-172-31-54-73 ~]#

I hope this helps, have a pleasant day!
