Fighting unmet peer dependencies - [SOLVED]

I’m fighting an unmet dependency concerning zone.js, here’s the error when I run npm install

└── UNMET PEER DEPENDENCY zone.js@0.7.6

npm WARN @angular/core@2.2.1 requires a peer of zone.js@^0.6.21 but none was installed.
npm WARN ionic-angular@2.0.0 requires a peer of zone.js@~0.6.26 but none was installed.

the following is my package.json file

“name”: “my app”,
“author”: “my company”,
“homepage”: “”,
“private”: true,
“scripts”: {
“clean”: “ionic-app-scripts clean”,
“build”: “ionic-app-scripts build”,

“typescript”: “2.1.6”
“cordovaPlugins”: [
“cordovaPlatforms”: [
“platform”: “ios”,
“version”: “”,
“locator”: “ios”
“description”: “my app”

not sure what i need to do. If i try to just install zone.js, I get the following:

└── zone.js@0.6.26 invalid

any thoughts?

thought I’d add my ionic info as well

Cordova CLI: 6.4.0
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0
Ionic CLI Version: 2.2.1
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.2.0
Ionic App Scripts Version: 1.0.0
ios-deploy version: 1.9.0
ios-sim version: 5.0.10
OS: macOS Sierra
Node Version: v6.9.4
Xcode version: Xcode 8.2.1 Build version 8C1002

I basically resolved it by following this thread: The best way to update my Ionic project to latest version of framework

which took me to here: which I followed the instructions in the CHANGELOG seciton,

which then broke storage, so I went to here:

which then fixed it…
