Error Messages

npm ERR! git clone [email protected]:file:dependencies/ undefined
npm WARN excluding symbolic link lib/ -> io.js
npm ERR! notarget No compatible version found: [email protected]'file:dependencies/'

Steps to Reproduce

Follow the steps as per installation guide of Pega Co-browse

Root Cause

Incorrect version of  NPM (Node Package Manager) is used.


Check the system requirements in installation guide.

The suggested Node JS version is 0.10.36 and the suggested NPM version is NPM v2.7.x.
NPM always gets installed along with Node JS. But, the NPM version that gets installed with Node 0.10.36 is an older version (some 1.x version).
User must explicitly upgrade the NPM to 2.7.x version. It is also important to not upgrade to any version other than 2.7.x.

To upgrade to 2.7.6, run npm install –g [email protected] at the console.

Updating to [email protected] resolves the reported issue.
