$ node -v v11.10.0 $ npm -v 6.7.0 $ node -p process.platform darwin
There are some ongoing problems with using sudo on Mac platforms. Usually, this error comes with additional logging (
Unhandled rejection Error: EACCES: permission denied). Based on that, you can fix the file ownership, then try your install again:
sudo chown -R $(whoami) ~/.npm sudo chown -R $(whoami) /usr/local/lib sudo chown -R $(whoami) /usr/local/bin
The long version and canonical bug is: Global installs (sudo npm i -g) fail on Mac after 6.5 upgrade. Works fine after 6.4.1 downgrade.
