Error when updating to Ionic CLI 3.15.0

Hi I am trying to update the Ionic CLI to 3.15.0 and I get this error

? The Ionic CLI has an update available (3.14.0 => 3.15.0)! Would you like to install it? Yes

npm i -g ionic@latest
× Running command - failed!

What is the problem here?

One solution: Uninstall your node, install nvm (or nvm-windows if you are on Windows), install a new node (which includes npm) with this, then install ionic and cordova again and try your command again. The problem should be gone.
