I get the below error message when I use a used-to-be working connection string to connect to my Mongo DB on the server. This started happening after I upgraded my Compass from 1.25 v to 1.30 v.

Server at localhost:27017 reports maximum wire version 5, but this version of the Node.js Driver requires at least 6 (MongoDB 3.6)
Please help as I use this to generate reports to check the app usage and various other user activity reports

My guess is that going from mongodb driver 4.1.0 to 4.2.1 had a breaking change - might be related to this:
