    Re-running this command with the --verbose flag may provide more information.

I just ran across this in a context completely unrelated to Ionic. The workaround there (downgrading node) should work for you here as well.

Thank you for your time and reply.

i tried by downgrading my node to v10 but still i’m facing the same problem.
