We found the issue.

It was the line var model = sequelize['import'](path.join(__dirname, file)); in models/index.js generated by lumber.

To fix this, you need to replace this line with:
var model = require(path.join(__dirname, file))(sequelize, Sequelize.DataTypes);

Hi @Thomas_Pucci,
Welcome to the Forest Admin community!

Thanks for your response.
I hope it will help other developers that would like to do the same upgrade to Sequelize v6.
