Unhandled Navigation Error: angular dist build

Unhandled Navigation Error: angular dist build

If you are an Angular developer, you might have encountered the error "Unhandled Navigation Error: angular dist build". This error usually occurs when Angular is not able to find the requested route in the compiled application code. There can be several reasons why this error occurs, and below are some possible solutions to fix it.

Check your routing configuration

The first thing you should do is to check your routing configuration. Make sure that you have defined all the routes correctly and that they match the paths in your application. You can also try to add a default route that redirects to the home page if no other routes are matched. Here's an example:

const routes: Routes = [
  { path: '', redirectTo: 'home', pathMatch: 'full' },
  { path: 'home', component: HomeComponent },
  { path: 'about', component: AboutComponent },
  { path: 'contact', component: ContactComponent },
  { path: '**', redirectTo: 'home' }

Check your base href

The base href is the URL prefix that should be used for all relative URLs. If this value is incorrect, Angular will not be able to find the requested route. You can check your base href value in the index.html file:

<base href="/">

If your application is hosted on a subdirectory, you should update this value accordingly. For example:

<base href="/myapp/">

Update your Angular version

If none of the above solutions work, you can try updating your Angular version. This error might be caused by a bug in the Angular framework, which might have been fixed in a newer version.

ng update @angular/core @angular/cli


If you encounter the error "Unhandled Navigation Error: angular dist build", don't panic. Check your routing configuration, base href, and Angular version, and you should be able to fix the issue. If you still can't solve the problem, try reaching out to the Angular community for help.
