Welcome back, Jo
Nice to see you again, 

This is a common error that happens for beginners so all you need to do is just fix the name of react library at the first line so it should be react with small r instead of React 

import React from 'react';//Instead of import React from 'React';

Works fine!! thanks :)

I have the same error but it is not because of the index.js import statement which is:

 import React from 'react';

The actual message suggests an issue with node modules:

Cannot find file: 'index.js' does not match the corresponding name on disk: './node_modules/React/react'.

There isn't a reference to React/react in the node modules

any other suggestions?  This is driving me crazy!

Hey Stephen i suggest if you re-installed the reactjs

npx create-react-app my-app cd my-app npm start

or you can update the npm packages by 

npm update

let me know if you solved the issue

Best regards

Cannot find file: 'index.js' does not match the corresponding name on disk: '.\node_modules\Prop-types\prop-types'.

What is the code which you are using? Can you try 

import PropTypes from 'prop-types';

& make sure there is no { }
otherwise please make sure that the package is already there & if it's there in the node_modules you can use diffferent version
