Hello dear community,

I am working on the following challenge.

When i update npm on cloud9, npm gets broken. It starts to give the following error. I cant install any other packages or do anything else. Probobly looks like a bug but anyone had such an experince?

Error: Cannot find module 'process-nextick-args’

at Function.Module._load (module.js:417:25)

at Function.Module._load (module.js:438:3)

Thanks for your help,

yup, happening to me as we speak!

very disheartening. im trying to follow the p1xt guide and it all revolves around getting the back-end down first ;(

i posted a question on Stack Overflow yesterday and was horribly dismissed and immediately downvoted, simply because the issue had many “solutions” already posted. which i did already try and nothing worked.

then for some odd reason i created a new workspace on c9 and it stopped goofing around and i managed to get a few challenges done within how-to-npm.

now im up to the Update section. and no matter what i type into the terminal it throws me that EXACT same error every single time whether i ask to show me the npm version, if i do npm update -g, if i do npm anything lol

hope someone fixes this asap

This solution worked for me. Update your npm version to the latest recommended version as follows:

nvm install v6.11.3

after that you can do:

npm install -g how-to-npm
or
npm install -g learnyounode

Thank you so much. This solved my problem. Been pulling out my hair.


#5

great job darush!

after the command below, updated npm again and this time it worked like a charm :slight_smile:
nvm install v6.11.3

this was a really bad bug. specially when you have such a boring bug at the beginning, its hair pulling as @divinelove says…

thanks!


#6

thanks alot worked for me too.


#7

Thanks darush. Worked perfectly.


#8

This worked for me too, but I had to start fresh with a new work space in order for it to work. Thanks, bro!


#9

THANKS THANKS THANKS~!

Can’t believe how many “solutions” did not work before this one.

youda youda best


#10

Thanks this was incredible helpful. I blame myself for using the forums as my last choice to find an answer. It should have been my first. Live and learn.


#11

Thanks for the solution! It worked for me. I ran the following:

nvm install v6.11.3

Then,

npm install -g how-to-npm

When running the verify command, I get the following:

verifying that npm is installed...
You have version 3.10.10 installed.  Great!
Now let's see what the latest version is... wait for it...
The latest npm is: 5.4.2
You have version 3.10.10, but the latest is 5.4.2
Run `npm install npm -g` to upgrade it
(You can also just skip this if you want)

For the challenges, is it necessary to upgrade to 5.4.2?


#12

Awesome, this got rid of that error when I run how-to-npm verify…


#13

Thanks a lot :smiley:


#14

This worked for me. Thank you.
