Can't Install Dependencies

  • Hi,
    I’m trying to install MM on a clean install of Raspbian (using a Raspberry Pi 3B) and my installation keeps crashing when it tries to update/install the dependencies. Below is the output from the terminal of the install. Originally I was having the issue in this here. I installed both nodejs, npm, and node-semver. After I installed those and reran the MM install (using the instructions here), I now get the errors below. I’ve had the magic mirror software on this pi before, but I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong this time.

    Cloning MagicMirror Done!

  • Module Developer

    npm version 1.4 seems quite not so high.

  • Thanks that was it! I’m not sure how I managed to install such an old version. Incase anyone else has this issue, I followed the instructions here to install the current version.
