What I Wanted to Do
I was installing dependencies of a project using npm install, when this error appeared suggesting the error should be reported.
What Happened Instead
This is the project from which I was installing the dependencies: https://github.com/dappuniversity/election
$ npm : 6.2.0
this looks like a permissions issue from running as root or something
