    npm ERR! make sure you have the latest version of node.js and npm installed.
    npm ERR! if you do, this is most likely a problem with the magicmirror package,
    npm ERR! not eith npm itself
    npm ERR! tell the author that this fails on your system:
    npm ERR! sh
    npm ERR! you can get information on how to open an issue for this project with:
    npm ERR! npm bugs magicmirror
    npm ERR! or of that isnt available you can get their info via:
    npm ERR! npm owner ls magicmirror
    npm ERR! there is likely additional logging output above

    npm ERR! please include the following file with any support requests
    npm ERR! /home/pi/magicmirror/npm-debug.log

    any ideas/help is appreciated,

    @jhlas22 are you trying to start the mirror via SSH? Did you run npm install in the magicmirror folder?
