When running npm install on recently updated or new packages, it returns something similar to the following:

npm http GET
npm http 200
npm http GET
npm http 404
npm ERR! fetch failed
npm ERR! Error: 404 Not Found

It's been reported in the following issues:

Is it possible that the new implementation of Fastly in front of the registry has side effects when it comes to new uploads?


It's worth noting that after an indeterminate amount of time, the packages do in fact install properly (for example, the report of clean-css in #4409 now installs just fine).

@antinescience , Is this still a problem for you?

There were some transient missing packages in the registry last January, but it has since been fixed.

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!)



This was totally just a minor registry outage, I think from when the caching in front of the registry changed? Always meant to come back and close it, just totally forgot. Closed as can't reproduce. Thanks!
