Install probs: 'ionic' is not in the npm registry

I have a few VM’s going, but I believe that this is a fresh install on this one.

Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.2.0-27-generic x86_64)

cmd: npm install -g ionic@latest cordova typescript

last lines of the output:

npm ERR! 404 ‘ionic’ is not in the npm registry.

have a 1.4M log file that doesn’t seem to tell me much, so a pointer on a direction appreciated, thanks in advance

Try to install using npm install -g ionic and then update the cordova typescript

got it resolved, my system was a mess. I’d forgotten I’d done an install really early on in a non std location and had updated my path. I just uninstalled everything I could find and reinstalled, all was well after that.
