Try using on the terminal


It'll ask you for the password, then you can run the command above.

Run these commands in a terminal window:

sudo chown -R $USER ~/.npm

sudo chown -R $USER /usr/lib/node_modules

sudo chown -R $USER /usr/local/lib/node_modules

Same problem. I reinstalled the latest version of node via https://nodejs.org/en/download/ instead of using terminal. This resolved the issue.
