Be sure the version you're calling in the scripts/vendor.js matches your jQuery version number in the scripts/vendor folder.

For example after a fresh install of slate in my vendor.js it was:

 * jquery-2.2.3.min.js
// =require vendor/jquery-2.2.3.min.js

and in my vendor folder the version supplied was 3.3.1 so I changed my vendor.js to

 * jquery-3.3.1.min.js
// =require vendor/jquery-3.3.1.min.js
