Problems with ionic start

Hello all,

when I try to create a new project using
ionic start,
I get an error message saying:
“Current working directory is not a Cordova-based project.”.
The first error message in the console is:
Error: %s Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, scandir 'test02/hooks’
test02 is the new app-directory path I choose where the project should be saved to.
After some tests, I discovered, that entering a new app-directory path causes this error. So when I leave this field empty, ionic start works.


I forgot to mention:

ionic info returns:

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.5.0
Ionic CLI Version: 2.2.1
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.2.0
ios-deploy version: 1.9.1
ios-sim version: 5.0.13
OS: macOS Sierra
Node Version: v6.9.2
Xcode version: Xcode 8.2.1 Build version 8C1002

I updated ionic by issuing
sudo install -g ionic cordova.

to update Cordova, I had to use
sudo npm install -g ios-deploy --unsafe-perm=true (see:
sudo npm update -g ionic

Ionic and Cordova should be up to date.
