Trouble Starting

  • I keep getting these errors when starting MM.

    Using pm2. Found in the npm logs. Any ideas?

    At first glance, I think you forgot to run the npm install in the proper directory during the upgrade. Try this:

    cd /home/pi/MagicMirror
    pm2 stop all
    git pull
    npm install

    The npm install command will take a while to run, so be patient. Let us know how it goes.
