As this is my first time installing, I tried manually installing npm but with no luck. The error does say I need to install peer dependencies manually. I researched manually installing the peer dependencies to no luck. Any pointers?
It looks like you’re attempting to install the Magic Mirror as the root user. You don’t want to do that. I would delete the
/root/MagicMirrordirectory, change back to the pi and then install from the home directory of that user.
Thanks for getting back to me @bhepler! I ran it as the normal PI user but ran into this:

Although, I got a little further this time around!
I was an idjit. I thought I had removed the directories but it seems there was another hidden one. We’re fine!
@roskafarian Glad to hear it! Does that mean this issue is resolved?
Oh yes! We’re cooking with lighter fluid as we speak

In case you didn’t find a solution yet, a user by the name sdetweil just helped me with a similar problem with my RPi 3 B+ running the latest Rasbian Stretch.
Here is the link to that discussion for everyone else who is stuck at this step too:
