Seeking Help with "html-pdf" Package Error on

I’m currently facing an issue with the “html-pdf” package in my Node.js backend deployed on and I’m seeking some assistance from the community.

Here’s the situation: I have integrated the “html-pdf” package (version 2.2.0) into my Node.js application to generate PDFs. Locally, everything works perfectly fine, and I’m able to generate and download PDFs without any issues. However, when I deploy the Node.js backend to and attempt to download a PDF, the process fails, and I receive the following error:

I changed my node pdf logic to use puppeteer because that was recommend but now I receive
