npm install crushing down

I re-installed nodejs, npm , but the npm install cmd is always shutting down. error still showing. All I got is this:

npm ERR! cb() never called!

npm ERR! This is an error with npm itself. Please report this error at:
npm ERR! https://npm.community2019-08-09T10_03_20_771Z-debug.log (875,9 KB)

No answers, just questions.

Are you able to share the package.json so I can try reproducing? (That looks like a BIG install!)

What version of npm are you using? Worth trying the latest version if you have not already.
npm install -g npm@latest

I am not sure this is related to the problem, but I am intrigued that a package is being downloaded multiple times.

Similar looking log in: cb<> never called
Ran for similar length of time, and no obvious errors.

here is my package-json. for the background story: I’m currently trying to run a test project with a given backend bundle (django, angular). Since I’m a newby and just wanna test some more to fresh up my knowledge. Happy if you can help me out!!

package.json (3,5 KB)

I was unable to reproduce the problem. Installed ok for me running npm 6.10.2 on Mac. My node_modules folder had 881M after the install.

added 1800 packages from 1251 contributors and audited 21637 packages in 85.625s

I don’t have any suggestions, hopefully someone else has an idea.

I’m using 6.9.0 on windows. currently. installation of latest version of npm in -g is working. But as soon as I’m in such project folder (cd frontend, where package.json is located). my installation of npm is crushing down, and all I got is this erorr. (latest version of npm is installed here aswell )
