Unable to install Ionic with npm? (Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.2)


I am trying to install Ionic using npm, on my mac, running OSX El Capitan 10.11.2.

sudo npm install -g cordova ionic

Cordova is already installed, and I definitely entered my password correctly. Here are the error messages and logs:
