Note: topics in #bugs should fill in all the details in the Bugs template, such as the command you were running. Bugs in #support are more freeform.

Assuming you are using sudo, a number of people are encountering EISDIR problems blocking global package installs, and a work-around is to reset the ownership and then not use sudo with the global install.

Your error is slightly different, but is still permission related so I think the advice may still help.

See this comment: Global installs (sudo npm i -g) fail on Mac after 6.5 upgrade. Works fine after 6.4.1 downgrade.
