Fixed it by running a script outside the modules using this method!
@sdetweil done and done sir! many thanks
pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ node -v v16.9.1
@sdetweil Still got able to install 16…
pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ sudo n 16
Error: no version found for ‘16’
@sdetweil AH ok thanks, i’ll give it another try then!
@sdetweil Thank you for your help anyway!
@sdetweil I’ve had MM for well over 2 years now and its always been like this to be fair, every time I’ve updated its broken it…
@sdetweil Still just get a ton of errors, looks like I might just have to format and start again
The fragility of MM is what kills it for me, one update and its all messed up, too many dependencies and fussy stuff going on, makes it so hard for the average user to deal with.
@sdetweil I cant seem to update node beyond 11.15, any ideas why??
