why is apiFetch throwing Unhandled Promise Rejection: TypeError: Object is not a function


I’m trying to diagnose a similar problem to this question, but in that case he wasn’t depending on wp-api-fetch, and … I’m pretty sure I am.

I’m getting the following error:

[Error] Unhandled Promise Rejection: TypeError: Object is not a function. (In 'Object(_wordpress_api_fetch__WEBPACK_IMPORTED_MODULE_5__["apiFetch"])', 'Object' is an instance of Object)

(full backtrace, below)

I should note that I’m new to both the REST API and ESNext/Gutenberg plugin development, so … I may be missing something really obvious, like a comma 🙂

Here’s the code:

import { __ } from 'WPBeginner - WordPress Tutorials/i18n';
import { Fragment } from 'WPBeginner - WordPress Tutorials/element';
import { TextControl } from 'WPBeginner - WordPress Tutorials/components';
import { apiFetch } from 'WPBeginner - WordPress Tutorials/api-fetch';

export default function Edit( props ) {
        const {
                attributes: { cwraggDataSourceType, cwraggDataSource,
                    cwraggLocalFile },
        } = props;

        const post_id = wp.data.select("core/editor").getCurrentPostId();

        const onChangeContent = async ( newUrl ) => {
                let localFileName = await apiFetch( {
                    path: '/cwraggb/v1/setremotedatasrc',
                    method: 'POST',
                    data: { 'url': newUrl,
                            'type': 'json',
                            'postId': post_id } } );

I looked at the output of npm run start, and it seems to be including the dependencies in the build:

<?php return array('dependencies' => array('wp-api-fetch', 'wp-blocks', 'wp-components', 'wp-element', 'wp-i18n', 'wp-polyfill'), 'version' => '566e4b7cb2f100542103b2b0e25aefae');

This is being built, and docker run, on MacOS 10.15.7.

~ % npm --version
~ % wp-env --version

Any ideas what’s causing that error, and/or how I can further diagnose?
