The "npm err! code elifecycle" error code happens when there is a problem with the package's dependencies, and the package can't be installed. This usually happens when a dependency is missing or has a different version than what the package needs.

1. Update npm: npm install -g npm@latest
Npm updates itself automatically so there is no need to use the -g flag. However, if you are using a version of npm that is not up to date, you can use the npm install -g npm@latest command to install the latest version of npm.
2. Clear the npm cache: npm cache clean --force
To clear the cache, you can use the npm cache clean --force command. This will force the cache to be cleared, regardless of whether or not any errors were reported.
3. Reinstall the package: npm install
- Navigate to the folder where the package you wish to install is located.
- In that folder, use the npm install command to install the package.
- If the package you are installing has dependencies, use the npm install -D command to install those dependencies.
- If the package you are installing has conflicts, use the npm install -C command to install the package and then use the npm conflict command to list the conflicts.
- Finally, use the npm install -U command to update the package.
Still not working? maybe try one of these options:
- Update Node.js: node -v
- Try using a different version of Node.js: nvm install
