New install of Sage: Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in main.js (which doesn't exist)

Right after I activated my Sage theme, I went to the homepage and checked the DevTools. I noticed there is an error in the console that reads:

/wp-content/themes/sage/dist/scripts/main.js/:2 Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token <

and its indicating that it is in this (non-existent) file:
/wp-content/themes/sage/dist/scripts/main.js/ on line 2

there is no dist folder, and therefore no files in that folder.

Is anyone else experiencing this? How can I fix the error?

You need to build the theme assets first, see:

Thanks! that worked and I feel really stupid for not realizing that myself.

after building the assets, with yarn build trying to use the directive @asset but got the error
