  1. The main change required to make this work in React 18 is missing in the blog. For instance, if you do not use the new createRoot API to initiate the application the react application reverts back to version 17 which is essentially wrong as the main intention to do this update is to use react 18 and the new features it has under the hood.

    The following link from React seems to be a better way of upgrade as they have also removed unmountcomponentatnode() method as well: https://reactjs.org/blog/2022/03/08/react-18-upgrade-guide.html
