This is probably a known bug. See long thread here:

[crash] npm ERR! cb() never called!

In particular, there is a canary build of npm that you can try using npx to see if it gives a more useful message when the install fails.

Thank you very much for the prompt response I will give that a try should I respond with further information on this thread or the one you linked to?

The thread I linked to. Good luck!
