cb() never called! Can't update NPM or install new
What I Wanted to Do
I wanted to update my NPM from 6.9.0 to latest so I can add React.
What Happened Instead
Received the “cb() never called!” error and all versions have stayed the same (or were not installed)
sudo npm install -g npm
sudo npm install -g create-react-app
$ npm --versions 6.9.0 $ node -p process.platform darwin
