Getting this exact error doing "npm search one" on a node freshly installed via homebrew (recently 'brew update'-d).

$ node -v
$ npm -v

Seems to be that repeat.js's package.json has an array for the description.

Update: I opened a pull request at repeat.js to address this on their side.


Duplicate of #2780.
