MMM-SpeedTest Fails to Install

  • Project Sponsor

    Hi @Bugsounet Thanks for the great module but I am having issues with installing the above module. I managed to install it fine on my Laptop running Ubuntu on Windows. When I tried to install it on my Raspberry Pi 3B+ I get an error. The error I get right at the end of the install is as follows:

    I tried uploading the full log but keep getting an error.

  • @mumblebaj hi, I see your log and I have see very old version of node and npm.
    Again I see an old Linux firmware. Try to update your rpi 😉
