Failed to upgrade cloud9 because E_MISSING_END_MARKER



Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open Cloud9
  2. be unable to use terminals because protocol version mismatch (client 8, server 7)
[vfs-collab] Couldn't load node modules sqlite3 and sequelize from /mnt/shared/lib/node_modules node version: v0.10.28; node execPath /nix/store/9vkhrpycs37cl5i8pywqkdz22773bybf-nodejs-0.10.38/bin/node

Cloud9 detected you are missing one or more collab dependencies. Would you like to open the installer to update to the latest version?

4 . Install any combination of the packages listed:

  • c9.ide.collab
  • SQLite
  • Sequelize
  • Collab server
    • Selecting only Collab server looks successful but prompts the same installation when reloading

5 . All of them except Collab server have the same error:

Installation Started

Package c9.ide.collab 1

    throw err;

Failed npm. Exit code E_MISSING_END_MARKER

One or more errors occured. Please try to resolve them and restart Cloud9 or contact

6 . Catch an aneurysm because all progress has been halted due to a strange and unsolvable issue

Error: protocol version mismatch (client 8, server 7)
