Is this still a problem for you?

It looks like you have an incorrectly-downloaded file in you cache. Can you try running npm cache clean and then retrying your install?

We are trying to clean up older npm issues, so if we don't hear back from you within a week, we will close this issue. (Don't worry -- you can always come back again and open a new issue!)
