Error on ./nodebb log every few minutes

General Discussion
  • Hello. When I'm looking at the log on my host machine through ./nodebb log, I get this like every 2 minutes:

    (node:5880) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: MongoError: ‘$set’ is empty. You must specify a field like so: {$set: {<field>: …}}

    (node:5880) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Unhandled promise rejection. This error originated either by throwing inside of an async function without a catch block, or by rejecting a promise which was not handled with .catch(). To terminate the node process on unhandled promise rejection, use the CLI flag --unhandled-rejections=strict (see (rejection id: 116)

    The "rejection ID" at the end increases every time I get the error. This causes no misfunction in my NodeBB forum whatsoever, I just want to know what is going on and where this error is coming from and what it means.

    Any help or replies are thanked in advance.

  • This could happen if db.setObject is called with an empty object like this db.setObject('someKey', {});.

    Can you put a console log in src/database/mongo/hash.js here. Place the below code and let me know the output.

    if (!Object.keys(data).length) {
       console.log('empty data', new Error('a').stack);
