Puppeteer. Error: Could not find Chromium (rev. 1069273)

If you got such an error:

Error: Could not find Chromium (rev. 1069273). This can occur if either
 1. you did not perform an installation before running the script (e.g. `npm install`) or
 2. your cache path is incorrectly configured (which is: /home/ruslan/.cache/puppeteer).
For (2), check out our guide on configuring puppeteer at https://pptr.dev/guides/configuration.

  1. Add file .puppeteerrc.cjs to your project root
const {join} = require('path');

 * @type {import("puppeteer").Configuration}
module.exports = {
  // Changes the cache location for Puppeteer.
  cacheDirectory: join(__dirname, '.cache', 'puppeteer'),

For more details read here https://pptr.dev/guides/configuration/#changing-the-default-cache-directory

2. Reinstall Puppeteer.

npm uninstall puppeteer
npm i puppeteer
