Reproduction Steps

git clone
cd vsts-fsharp
git checkout 831da2dbee605f08e0285b4293dcacf2e31d2ef3
// delete npm cache - C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\npm-cache

cd Common
npm pack
cd ..
mkdir _build
mv Common/vsts-fsharp-task-common-0.1.0.tgz _build/

npm install // crashes


delete package-lock.json


From first investigation I’d assume it has to do something with the fact that the .tgz file has a different hash-sum than the one on the lock file. But npm should print a better error message or update the hash if that is the case. On the other hand everything works after initially deleting the lock-files.

This is fixed by ssri@6.0.1 and will be part of the next npm release (post-6.4.1).

(Matthias Dittrich) #3

Can I already test or update? Or do you know when it will be released?

(Kat Marchán) #4

I’ve pushed the code up to the canary. You should be able to do npx npmc install now. The next npm release is scheduled for next week, but there’s a chance it won’t happen, since I’ll be on vacation until October 1.

(Matthias Dittrich) #5

I can verify that npx npmc install works. Thanks a lot for the fast response time!
