Unable to install plugins (ETIMEDOUT)

I can not install any plugins at all, here’s the output:

Update your Ionic CLI, Remove all existing Cordova plugins, update cordova, add those plugins again

Remove Platform and add it again

#4

Your Cordova CLI install seems to be very old, the plugins have not been hosted on cordova.io for some time: http://cordova.apache.org/announcements/2015/04/21/plugins-release-and-move-to-npm.html

I did all three things you guys said, and it’s fixed. (I don’t know which one fixed it, pretty sure updating did)

I had some problems updating, I fixed the npm error and updated.
