Failed to detect npm snap install

I initially had nodejs and npm installed as a Snap package.
When I created a new project with Ionic I was getting an error with ionic serve and just crashing with exit code 1.

I was searching around trying to find the issue.
I ran ionic info and saw this.


   Ionic CLI                     : 5.0.1 (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ionic)
   Ionic Framework               : @ionic/angular 4.4.2
   @angular-devkit/build-angular : 0.13.9
   @angular-devkit/schematics    : 7.3.9
   @angular/cli                  : 7.3.9
   @ionic/angular-toolkit        : 1.5.1


   cordova-res : not installed
   native-run  : not installed


   NodeJS : v10.16.0 (/snap/node/2212/bin/node)
   npm    : not installed
   OS     : Linux 5.0

It says npm is not installed. I know it is installed because I wouldn’t have gotten this far. I switched to the Ubuntu package and it is working fine now.

So it looks like a bug with snap packages.
