1. Update npm: npm install -g [email protected]

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 [email protected] 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

  1. Navigate to the folder where the package you wish to install is located.
  2. In that folder, use the npm install command to install the package.
  3. If the package you are installing has dependencies, use the npm install -D command to install those dependencies.
  4. 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.
  5. Finally, use the npm install -U command to update the package.
