Tried to execute platform add android, for it only to fail while trying to install the first plugin. this is not a version problem as a colleague of mine had no problems and we have the same versions installed

removing cordova , node and ionic in several ways doesnt solve it.

tried several times to start the root folder from scratch and clone from git again.

nothing seems to work,

if there is anyone who knows what i am missing/ doing wrong id love to hear

npm uninstall cordova ionic
npm cache clean -f
sudo npm install -g cordova@6.5.0


npm uninstall cordova ionic
npm cache clean -f
npm install -g cordova@6.5.0

No. Bad. Use nvm instead.

Well i tried re instelling cordova and also set it to 6.5.0 I also set it to static in the config and (even going as far as removing the hidden folder in the users directory ) but I guesse a clean cache couldn’t hurt,.
I’ll try it right now in the train on my way to work

Thanks very much for the help in any case

Thanks a bunch, didnt figure just the cache clear would do the trick, o well it worked !
