Output visible error when npm package is missing a dependency

If a block-editor related package is missing a dependency, things silently fail with no visible pointer to the problem. A case in point is the recent @wordpress/reusable-blocks package that was split out from @wordpress/editor. Updating the npm packages caused a WSOD on the editor, with no indication of what was wrong.

There should be some error message in this situation that can help us debug it.
