when I want to install dependencies of the aurelia project, got this error:

How can fix this?

Node v15.5.1

npm v7.3.0


Solution

It appears to me and this GitHub thread that you are trying to install global dependencies which require elevated permissions and/or npm package version is bugged. Make sure you have sufficient rights to downgrade npm to the earliest version.

Please let me know, if that solved your problem.
