Django in production not loading JS files (CSS working)

Running an app in Django. When Debug=True it all works fine. When Debug=False most of the app works fine except from a few static files, from what I was able to understand js files.

I run already python manage.py collectstatic and the css of the templates work, so the processs seems to have been succesful. Still though, a few JS files don't get loaded and this is messing up my admin panel.

This is the terminal error for the production environment (debug=False)
