YAML_FILE_ERROR Message: Unknown runtime version named '12' of nodejs


I have an Angular 8 / node express (node 10) application. I have updated it locally to Angular 10 / node 12. When I push it and it tries to deploy I get the following error:

My .yml file had 10 which I changed to 12:

version: 0.2

nodejs: 12
- npm i npm@latest
- npm install
- npm install -g @angular/cli

where do you configure what node versions the build image supports - "This build image has the following versions: 10, 8"?

I came across the same issue in my CodeBuild pipeline and I can explain the frustration in finding the answer that worked for me.

According to this link (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/codebuild/latest/userguide/runtime-versions.html) it says that that Amazon Linux 2 should support NodeJs 12. But it does not give no distinction between the different version of Amazon Linux 2 images that exist.

This link (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/codebuild/latest/userguide/available-runtimes.html) cleared it up for me. I was using Amazon Linux 2 x86_84 standard:1.0, this only supports up to NodeJs 10.

The fix: Update your image to one of the following:

  • Amazon Linux 2 x86_64 standard:2.0
  • Amazon Linux 2 x86_64 standard:3.0
  • Amazon Linux 2 AArch64 standard:1.0
  • Amazon Linux 2 AArch64 standard:2.0
  • Ubuntu standard:3.0
  • Ubuntu standard:4.0
  • Ubuntu standard:5.0

Paying attention to the Linux type when switching. In my case (I was using CDK) updating the build image from codebuild.LinuxBuildImage.AMAZON_LINUX_2 to codebuild.LinuxBuildImage.AMAZON_LINUX_2_2 made the difference. I don't know what that looks like in a .yml file but I am certain there is some syntax that will enable the build image to be changed to one of the above images. Good luck and I hope this post helps anyone else struggling with this.
