AssertionError [ERR_ASSERTION]: Task function must be specified at Gulp.set [as _setTask]

Gulp 4 requires the Gulp function to be specified. The video says to use:

gulp.task('build', ['concatScripts', 'minifyScripts', 'compileSass']); 

but for Gulp 4 (which is what most have at this time), you must use the gulp.series before the array of tasks to perform the synchronized build task.

gulp.task('build', gulp.series('concatScripts', 'minifyScripts', 'compileSass')); 

hopefully this helps someone.
