Cannot find module ‘XXXXX’ has encountered this problem,
I have tried:

npm install semver 
npm install -g

This is not going to work.
and then find another solution.
first see if your NPM is useful. Check method: open the terminal and enter

npm -v

If the error is reported, then it is necessary to re-install NPM. First, the original NPM is deleted. The method is:
, you can go to the global NPM package to have a look, the path is:


Go to the Semver folder in NOde_modules in NPM and you’ll see that it’s empty! Or no, we will know why semver module can not be found!
1. First delete the global NPM package: just mentioned /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ NPM, this NPM folder delete
2. Go to /usr/local/lib/node_modules and clone git from GitHub

git clone --recursive git://

This brings the new NPM package back to global node_modules

npm -v

Check it in the terminal. If you can print it out, that’s fine.
