    I always get this error message when I run "Ionic start project name":

    Error message

    Try to remove /usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm and reinstall node again. This should work.

    I received a similar error and now have it working.

    First make sure you have the latest version

    brew update

    Remove your previous instance of node:

    brew uninstall node

    Then reinstall the latest version:

    brew install node

    And then make sure it is symlinked into /usr/local if it isn't already. You would get an error to let you know to complete this step.

    brew link --overwrite node

    On Mac OS X (10.12.6), I resolved this issue by doing the following:

    brew uninstall --force node
    brew install node

    I then got an error complaining that node postinstall failed, and to rerun brew postinstall node

    I then got an error:

    permission denied @ rb_sysopen /usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npx

    I resolved that error by:

    sudo chown -R $(whoami):admin /usr/local/lib/node_modules

    And now I don't get this error any more.

    Simply follow three steps:

    1. Clear npm cache forcefully forcefully

      npm cache clean -f

    2. Install 'n' package globally using npm:

      npm install -g n

    3. Install from any of three options:

      a. sudo n stable (get the stable version)

      b. sudo n latest (get the latest version of node)

      c. sudo n x.x.x (get the specific version of node)
