Following issues with further sections because of the outdated version of React Router used in this tutorial, I manually updated package,json to use the old version so that I could continue the course.
Please note that this is only recommended as a temporary fix for this exercise. I would not recommend this when working on a professional project as you are most certainly running with a known insecure SSL.

At this point, rather than trying to configure webpack to work with an outdated version of react router, I would instead just check out the docs on the react router page and see if you can build the same simple app with the new version. The differences aren’t huge. They have clearly written documentation and a tutorial.
The fact that this exercise has been broken for 8 months now and nobody on the Codecademy team has reviewed the exercise to work with the latest version of React Router seems just lazy. I’m paying the pro subscription and putting my trust in the academic team to teach me up to date content. I know as a developer we will have to do work arounds a lot of times to get outdated software to run, but the fact that y’all know it and won’t even want to fix it is lazy. It’s not an unknown bug and just adding a disclaimer at the top of the exercise with the official documentation instead of just reviewing your exercise is just lazy.
This project has been out of date for over a year. If I wasn’t two thirds of the way through your front-end development course, I would seriously consider taking my learning elsewhere. As @mreed4 said, this is at least the 3rd example in your react course that needs to be updated.
To everyone seeking help on this project: do yourself a favor and just do the tutorial project on the official React Router website.
The info will be up to date and your project will actually run (what a concept)!
