uninstalling npm packages


I am trying to uninstall npm packages to fix an error that occurs when installing a package:

npm: /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/node_modules/cacache/node_modules/glob/LICENSE already exists in filesystem

I have been following this thread

but when I run the npm uninstall commands the directory remains there, same thing if I try to manually remove it, or try to uninstall using pacman.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Try the package with the command "overwrite" to install.

sudo pacman -S packagename --overwrite "*"

What npm package? Have you check to see if it's available in the AUR?
