npm cant find file to rename delete

npm install with a message of
This is related to npm not being able to find a file.

- Try running
npm installmore than once. 🤦
- Try deleting the

- Try using
yarninstead. This has been my solution in the past.
But the best solution for me seems to be:
npm cache clean -f
To completely clear whatever

- What could cause an error related to npm not being able to find a file? No contents in my node_modules subfolder. Why is that?
