Hey @rican_darwin,

Can you run expo diagnostics and paste the log that’s printed out here?

Cheers,
Adam

@khantwaikyaw Crap, I zoned out for the past couple of hours trying to fix it and my 4am brain can’t remember what worked. I’d suggest deleting nodejs, npm, and nvm(if you’re using it, its a node version manager). Restart the computer/vps/whatever. Install nodejs 10 from the NodeMasters (or whatever it’s called) repo. Then try again.

Like I said, I’m way too out of it to remember exactly what I did to fix it. Some kind of permissions error that was affected by another node server I was running at the same time. Restarting it got that other program to stop, I think. LMK if none of this helps and I’ll think about it more tomorrow.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. Still, the same issue faced. I think need to reinstall node and npm and then follow the next step. Can you please guide me how I can reinstall node and npm in mac.

Error as below :-

This solved my issue. Thanks!

None of these responses will permanently fix this, and many of them shouldn’t be used due to security issues (especially if you’re on a Mac because part of this is System Integrity Protection configurations that will get overwritten on system updates).

Instead, just change you global npm modules folder variable to a folder in your home directory; your user owns this so you shouldn’t run into this issue again.

Here’s instructions: https://docs.npmjs.com/resolving-eacces-permissions-errors-when-installing-packages-globally

This will fix the issue permanently for Expo and any other situations where you run into this ( I ran into the same issue with Loopback recently, too on a machine other than my main and this solved that, as well).

This also applies to Windows, btw.

I worked for me, was entirely a permission issue. Thanks a lot !
