Error: aws.dynamodb.documentclient is not a constructor

What's Causing This Error

This error occurs in Node.js when you install an older version of the AWS SDK. AWS introduced the DocumentClient in version 2.2.0 of the AWS SDK. So all applications running a version number lower than 2.2.0 of the AWS SDK will experience this error as the DocumentClient does not exist in these earlier versions.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

To resolve the error, install the latest version of the AWS SDK using the below command.

npm i aws-sdk@latest

If the above command does not work, delete the package-lock.json file and re-rerun the command.
