Tell us about your environment

What parser (default, @babel/eslint-parser, @typescript-eslint/parser, etc.) are you using?

module.exports = {
  parserOptions: {
    ecmaVersion: 2015

What did you do? Please include the actual source code causing the issue.

Online Demo

/* eslint no-extra-parens: "error" */


What did you expect to happen?

No errors. Per the specification for UpdateExpression, linebreaks are not allowed before postfix ++ and --. In similar situations (return, throw, yield) no-extra-parens doesn't report an error.

What actually happened? Please include the actual, raw output from ESLint.

no-extra-parens error and auto-fix to:

/* eslint no-extra-parens: "error" */


Message after the auto-fix:

  5:1  error  Parsing error: Unexpected token

What changes did you make? (Give an overview)

Fixed the no-extra-parens rule to not report an error if the parenthesized argument of an UpdateExpression is not on the same line as the postfix operator.

Is there anything you'd like reviewers to focus on?
