    I had taken a snapshot of this VM and was able to revert, so I'm back up and running on v1.7.x

  • Do you not have npm installed? What version of node?

    @arizona Ubuntu 18.04 is now out of support, best recommendation now is to upgrade your OS.

    The plugin was indeed in the dependencies section even though it was not installed on my nodeBB instance, weird.

    Removing it has fixed the error. Thank you so much for your help 🙂

    Here's how the package.json file looked like:

    You have managed to mess up the file permissions in the NodeBB directory. You should always execute ./nodebb, npm, and git commands under the same unprivileged user, which means no sudo.

    You will need to recursively chown the nodebb directory back over to whatever unprivileged user should own it.

    What upgrade instructions are you trying to follow?
