If you are get directory and file permission error when using the "npm install" command, you should follow this tutorial to reinstall "node" and "npm" with the "nvm" Node Version Manager.

1. Check the current version of "node" and "npm":

$ node -v
v8.10.0

$ npm -v
6.9.0

2. Download nvm install script and run it:

$ curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.34.0/install.sh > install.sh
$ chmod 700 install.sh
$ sudo ./install.sh

3. Load nvm.sh as nvm command:

$ export NVM_DIR="$HOME/.nvm"
$ [ -s "$NVM_DIR/nvm.sh" ] && \. "$NVM_DIR/nvm.sh"  # This loads nvm
$ [ -s "$NVM_DIR/bash_completion" ] && \. "$NVM_DIR/bash_completion" 

$ nvm --version
0.34.0

4. Reinstall "node", including "npm", with "nvm":

$ nvm install node
