What's the reason why I can't run basic ionic commands?

I am under the suspicion that maybe upgrading Node or cordova is causing this? I can’t even run an ionic info command because I keep getting the same error or message… Does anyone know why this is happening? My issue in MORE detail is available here. issue on github

I also have it here(with a photo) stackover flow issue

The error…

WARN: ionic.project has been renamed to ionic.config.json, please rename it.
(node:9061) fs: re-evaluating native module sources is not supported. If you are using the graceful-fs module, please update it to a more recent version.
Uh oh! Looks like you're missing a module in your gulpfile:
Cannot find module 'bower'

Do you need to run `npm install`?
