UPDATE: uninstalling and reinstalling angular-cli should fix the issue:

as mentioned by @nikokosh and @davidrensh below try:

sudo npm uninstall -g angular-cli
sudo npm install -g angular-cli

This worked for me in the latest versions as well.

Original quick fix: reinstalling node

Somehow in earlier angular-cli version it seemed to me angular-cli somehow broke node installation. Manual fix, uninstalling and reinstalling node completely fixed the issue for me. hope i didn't forget anything:

#### uninstalling globally installed libs
sudo npm uninstall -g angular-cli
#### uninstall other libs
sudo npm uninstall -g

#### uninstalling node
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/{lib/node{,/.npm,_modules},bin,share/man}/{npm*,node*,man1/node*}
rm -rf /Users/[homedir]/.npm

#### reinstall node

#### update npm to latest
sudo npm install -g npm

#### reinstall angular-cli
sudo npm install -g angular-cli

Related to this: the procedure in the "upgrade guide":

https://github.com/angular/angular-cli#updating-angular-cli

is very off-putting, a negative quality signal. Many, many developers upgrade many NPM packages every day, without throwing away their NPM cache (!!).

To make these instruction confidence-inspiring, there should be:

  • Explanation, even brief, of why this package (unlike countless others) requires throwing away the whole NPM cache for each upgrade.
  • Hopefully a pointer to some known NPM defect that temporarily justifies the instructions.

@manuelfink thank you very much, works fine! :)

@manuelfink Very weird that it's breaking the global npm... I'll flag this as urgent but I don't have a linux machine to debug myself.

@kylecordes Angular-CLI uses the same upgrade guide as Ember-CLI because it is essentially an Ember-CLI addon. See https://github.com/ember-cli/ember-cli/releases

@nikokosh

I had the same problem on El Capitan
node 6.2.1
npm 3.9.3.

It was solved by simple uninstall of angular-cli:
sudo npm uninstall -g angular-cli

And its immediate reinstalling:
sudo npm install -g angular-cli

Without npm reinstalling you can keep your cash and all the dependencies as it was.

@davidrensh

Solved by (nothing else):
npm uninstall -g angular-cli
npm install -g angular-cli

I had the same problem and it was also solved by @davidrensh solution:
npm uninstall -g angular-cli
npm install -g angular-cli

windows 10 64 bit
node v6.4.0
npm v3.10.3

@looselytyped

@nikokosh and @davidrensh solution worked for me as well. No need to reinstall npm, or node. Simply npm uninstall -g angular-cli then npm install -g angular-cli

@ShadowManu

The fixes mentioned here work for me too, but they happen again as soon as I try to run npm install or npm update after the fix. Can someone confirm if this happens too?

@manuelfink

@filipesilva @ShadowManu I can confirm, still having the same issue every time I try to update angular-cli I ran across the problem.

In my case, I first changed my node version to 6.6.0 with npm 3.10.3. And then I changed my permissions of the location where node is located using this link : https://docs.npmjs.com/getting-started/fixing-npm-permissions
I again got an error similar to this trail and then i finally uninstalled and installed angular-cli using npm, and finally it worked ! :)

@lorenjerickson

I can also confirm that after a failed angular-cli install due to this problem, if you uninstall angular-cli via npm and then reinstall angular-cli globally it works (or worked...for me...once).

Node 6.x
Npm 3.x

@manuelfink The uninstall/reinstall worked for me on Windows 10 with node 6.x/npm 3.x. Weird, but whatevs, it's working. Thank you.

Reinstall -g angular-cli doesn't help me on win 8.1, node 4+, npm 3+. I get the same error. In the same time if I open location of angular-cli, on my pc and start ng new path\to\app from this location it actually creates folder and install dependencies

+1 on sierra, uninstalled node/npm with the steps above, reinstalled node v7. installing ngcli still threw lots of errors on dependencies but the fallbacks seemed to work out pretty good.

Currently working after above steps.

Closing this as obsolete. This is an NPM issue.
