Importing Redux on causing import error

I am trying to import Redux code to use on

Whenever I try to import createStore from redux, I get a error:

SyntaxError: Cannot use import statement outside a module

I tried adding "type": "module" to the package.json, but I get an error.

Error [ERR_REQUIRE_ESM]: require() of ES Module /home/runner/Manage-Boxes-Redux-Code/index.js not supported.
Instead change the require of index.js in null to a dynamic import() which is available in all CommonJS modules.

  "name": "manage",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "description": "",
  "main": "index.js",
  "scripts": {
    "test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1"
  "type": "module",
  "keywords": [],
  "author": "",
  "license": "ISC",
  "dependencies": {
    "redux": "^4.1.2"

Try common.js syntax:

const createStore = require('redux').createStore;
