Undefined is not an object (evaluating 'nativeVersion.major')

hey there. I need help on starting a react app on Expo
I caught the following error: undefined is not an object evaluating nativeVersion. I tried to update all packages and node version, as i saw on this topic: https://github.com/viromedia/viro/issues/41. But didnt work.
I dont know what to do.
Does have anyone an idea and could help me?

Im adding some more informations:

not sure what you’re doing when starting this project but it’s almost certainly not the right thing :stuck_out_tongue: just run exp init SomeProject or download xde and create a new project

Yeah man, with a new project it works. But i have an older project which is not working.
Thks for the reply

make sure the dependencies are set correctly in package.json and that the sdkVersion is set correctly in app.json

Well, the problem is solved. After all I had to update all packages, node and expo and update the SDK version.
Thks @notbrent
Could you explain where I can check the compatibility between expo and SDK´s versions?
Now I am getting a new error, because react has not backward compatibility and I have to migrate my project.
But I will open a new topic about this.
