Can't complete the final new project step

Hi, New to apostrophe and followed the Creating your first project steps and all is fine until the final step 3. Once I run the commands in the terminal I receive this error.

cd test-project
 # Install our dependencies (most notably, Apostrophe)
 npm install
 # Add an admin user to the admin group; prompts for password
 node app.js apostrophe-users:add admin admin
 # Go go go!
 node app.js

ignore the hash comments.

This has been fixed via the release of emulate-mongo-2-driver version 1.0.4. npm update should restore your Node 13 compatibility. If npm update somehow fails to pick it up, delete package-lock.json and run npm install again.
