Starters not working?

For some reason, starters are no longer working with Ionic CLI 5.4.1. The download just seems to hang.

$ ionic start foo tabs --type angular
✔ Preparing directory ./foo - done!
⠙ Downloading and extracting tabs starter (100.00%)

I had a laptop with 5.1.0 on it, and this same command worked. I upgraded it to 5.4.1 and was able to reproduce. I then tried downgrading to 5.1.0, but the problem persists. Is anyone else experience this as well?

I’ve had the exact same issue for about a week now.

However, I just tried the Ionic CLI version 5.4.2 - and the starter started working!

So: just upgrade to the new version of Ionic to solve this issue.
