What am I doing wrong and how can i fix it?

Thanks very much for your help


#3

Hey Jack,

What version of Ubuntu are you using?


#4

Thanks for the quick reply, I am using Ubuntu 17.10


#5

Ok in the install folder can you try

npm update

This should install all the dependencies


#6

I am new to this so please excuse my ignorance but is the install folder here johnnyjackson061@cardano-vm-1:~/daedalus$


#7

It should be the folder you cloned the daedalus repo in. That looks about right


#8

After I update it how can i check to make sure the errors are fixed?


#9

I am sorry for all of the questions but really appreciate your help


#10

So after the update run

npm install

and see if you still get the same problems


#11

unfortunately, I still get the same error after running the update and then the install command.
here is what was displayed
