    Hi, Thank you for your help. I have been trying to install MM. At first, I had a trouble installing electron and node. Now I got dependencies error.

    I’ve tried what you suggested and I got the following error.

    During the installation of MM, I got Unable to install dependencies!.

    Could you please help?

    NPM install is giving error.

    Help please.

    I meet the same issue than you and I solved it by uninstalling nodejs

    sudo apt-get remove nodejs
    

    and reinstall nodejs by using the MagicMirror install script

    bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/master/installers/raspberry.sh)"
    

    During the installation, npm install -g npm@latest give me this error

    npm ERR! path /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/node_modules/ansi-regex
    npm ERR! code EACCES
    npm ERR! errno -13

    and I run same command as root to solved this

    sudo npm install -g npm@latest
    

    Here is version of nodejs install by MagicMirror script :

    Installed Node version: v9.11.2

  • @nonamero I’ve brought this up on another thread, but I’ll mention here so that it is captured in context: for the last couple months Node.js and npm are currently BROKEN on RaspberryPi.

    I just tried a test this morning using the started Electron app at https://electronjs.org/docs/tutorial/first-app

    Running the automated install is a Red Herring. It is inappropriate to suggest it.

    We have to figure out how to fix the bugs in the Node.js installation for Raspberry Pi before anything else. I’m wondering if installing an older version of Node.js is the solution. If so, then what version would we start with?



  • @postremalone

    I just installed a module and it asked me to update NPM think i did it in the root directory not MagicMirror one can be sure.

    This is what worked for me
    sudo npm i -g npm



  • Aha-got it!

    sudo rm -rf ~/.nvm
    sudo rm /usr/local/bin/node
    sudo rm /usr/local/bin/nvm
    pm2 stop mm (not sure if I missed this earlier)
    bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/master/installers/raspberry.sh)"
    

    This installed fine, but gave me an error of an out-of-date npm version, so I ran:

    sudo npm i -g npm
    

    Then moved all my old modules and config file over to the new install and checked my node/npm versions:

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirrorBackup/modules $ node -v
    v9.11.2
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirrorBackup/modules $ npm -v
    6.5.0
    

    So they’re not as up-to-date as my previous ones, but MagicMirror is working fine!

    Thanks everyone for the input, turns out just a bit of manual removal and persistence sorted me out!
