I have a problem of importing a module during a strapi build on one of our home-made plugins.

We have in our company a Strapi project with home-made plugins (thanks Strapi!). The project runs on a server without any problem. Strapi is in a Docker container.

I need to move this project to a new server. When I rebuild the Strapi container, I get this error and I confess I don’t understand why it appears now. On the other server, during the development phases, this error did not appear.
Thank you very much for your feedback.

Current server: ubuntu 20.04.5
New server: ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS

It is the RUN yarn build command that triggers this error.

Did you found any solution? I’m facing a similiar problem.

ModuleNotFoundError: Module not found: Error: Can't resolve '@strapi/icons/CarretDown' in 'C:\Users\xxx\www\xxx-cms\strapi\node_modules\@strapi\design-system\dist\Select'
Did you mean 'CarretDown.js'?
BREAKING CHANGE: The request '@strapi/icons/CarretDown' failed to resolve only because it was resolved as fully specified
(probably because the origin is strict EcmaScript Module, e. g. a module with javascript mimetype, a '*.mjs' file, or a '*.js' file where the package.json contains '"type": "module"').
The extension in the request is mandatory for it to be fully specified.
Add the extension to the request.
