I run into the above error because I try to deploy a Firebase Cloud Function via gcloud tool (where firebase tool should be used instead).

const functions = require('firebase-functions');exports.hello = functions.https.onRequest((req, res) => {  res.send(`Hello ${}`);});

This will produce the error

gcloud functions deploy hello --runtime nodejs10 --trigger-http --allow-unauthenticated

Use this instead

firebase deploy --only functions:hello

Refer Cloud Functions by Firebase vs Cloud Functions.
