Cannot find module 'read' (CLI v1.7.14)

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: Not installed
Gulp version:  CLI version 3.9.0
Gulp local:  
Ionic CLI Version: 1.7.14
Ionic App Lib Version: 0.7.0
OS: Distributor ID:	Ubuntu Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 
Node Version: v4.3.0

When I try to install this package, it looks like it’s already installed.

aarmora@Breeze:/home/sites$ sudo npm install -g read
read@1.0.7 /usr/lib/node_modules/read
└── mute-stream@0.0.5

I’ve uninstalled node, cordova, ionic and reinstalled all of them but it yields the same.

Any ideas?

Hello! Check your nodejs settings . You must install node js correctly like:

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
sudo npm update -g
sudo npm install -g cordeva ionic
