ELIFECYCLE error after fresh install

  • @sdetweil Well I deactivated VNC, restarted and plugged my keyboard in the RasPi and this too didn’t change anything sadly.

  • @MrKnight230 ok, and u did the DISPLAY=:0

  • @sdetweil I actually didn’t but the result stays the same with “DISPLAY=:0”

  • @MrKnight230 and after u did the git pull of the new version, you did npm install in the MM folder and all modules with a package.json file, right?

  • @sdetweil I did run npm install again now and the output looks like this:

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm install
    > magicmirror@2.7.1 install /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > cd vendor && npm install

    But it again didn’t change anything.

    @MrKnight230 - The good news is that the npm install completed successfully. Hmm.

    Have you tried running Magic Mirror in server only mode and then hitting your mirror with a web browser?

    IMHO, I think the “fix vulnerabilities” feature of npm is causing more trouble than it is worth.

  • Hi guys, I just wanted to say thank you to @bhepler and @sdetweil for trying to help me with this problem.

    In the end I just used a very old backup at first and updated it, which worked fine at first and yesterday I tried setting my RPi up from scratch again and it worked perfectly!

    I’m sorry for anybody who encounters the same error and tries finding answers here, sadly there doesn’t seem to be a perfect solution for this.
