E0119: missing body for catch clause

catch clauses in try statements require a body, which must be a list of statements surrounded by { and }. It is a syntax error to omit the body of a catch clause:

const fs = require("fs");

async function readConfig(configFilePath) {
  try {
    let data = await fs.promises.readFile(
      configFilePath,
      "utf-8",
    );
    return parseConfig(data);
  } catch (error)
}

To fix this error, write the body of the catch statement, including { and }:

const fs = require("fs");

async function readConfig(configFilePath) {
  try {
    let data = await fs.promises.readFile(
      configFilePath,
      "utf-8",
    );
    return parseConfig(data);
  } catch (error) {
    if (error.code === 'ENOENT') {
      return {};
    } else {
      throw error;
    }
  }
}
