    The raspberry pi I’m using is a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2.
    I’m not quite sure if the error is coming from this

    (node:8915) [DEP0022] DeprecationWarning: os.tmpDir() is deprecated. Use os.tmpdir() instead.
    

    or entirely something else.

    @alenba2 your npm and node versions are way too old.

    Update npm using:

    npm install npm@latest -g
    

    (you may need sudo access for that, I’m not sure anymore. Try without first.)

    Update node FOR EXAMPLE by using n:

    npm cache clean -f
    npm install -g n
    n stable
    

    Again, I’m not sure, try without sudo. If it’s not working try with sudo.



  • Yea I just solved the problem. I basically changed software from Raspbian Sketch to Raspbian Jessie. Thanks for helping.

    @alenba2 Well MM definitely works with stretch but nevertheless… if it works, I guess it’s ok
