'.then(...).catch' not a function

See original GitHub issue


I just encountered this issue while working with promise queries. For example:

  .then(data => {
  .catch(err => {

works fine if only the .then(...) is present, but catch gets reported as not being a function.

    name: req.params.username
  .then(data => {
    if (!data) {
      let err = new Error();
      err.status = 404;
      return next(err);
  }, err => {
//  .error(err => {
//    next(err);
//  });

This works. However, .error(fn) does not work either for me - error gets replaced by users.findOne(...).then(...).error is not a function.
