NPM install is not working


Hi, guys, I’m working through the FreeCodeCamp Node.js curriculum and am trying to install packages, but npm install is not working. I’ve tried npm install bl and npm install concat-stream, and get the same series of errors (below). Any thoughts?

baruchkogan:~/workspace $ npm install bl

Solved, by using npm install --registry

Very strange.


Not solved for me
Here is what I have used to far I tried
npm config set proxy null
npm config set registry
