Does /private/var/root/package.json exist? If not, npm won't know what you want it to do when you run npm test.
It doesn't exist. I guess my issue is in the nstaller. Still not sure how to fix it though. This is the install error log:

Looks like you're trying to run npm start in a directory (/private/var/root) that doesn't have a package.json. npm won't know what you want to "start" unless there's a package.json in your current working directory.
Closing as resolved – @KenanY's explanation of what's going on is correct.
