unable to resolve dependency tree error for creating new angular project


so today I wanted to create a new Angular project using the command ng new <projectname> and I got this error:

npm ERR! ERESOLVE unable to resolve dependency tree
npm ERR!
npm ERR! While resolving: [email protected]
npm ERR! Found: [email protected]
npm ERR! node_modules/jasmine-core
npm ERR!   dev [email protected]"~3.6.0" from the root project
npm ERR!
npm ERR! Could not resolve dependency:
npm ERR! peer [email protected]">=3.7.1" from [email protected]
npm ERR! node_modules/karma-jasmine-html-reporter
npm ERR!   dev [email protected]"^1.5.0" from the root project
npm ERR!
npm ERR! Fix the upstream dependency conflict, or retry
npm ERR! this command with --force, or --legacy-peer-deps
npm ERR! to accept an incorrect (and potentially broken) dependency resolution.

I literally tried everything, I updated npm, installed Angular cli again, download and installed node again, npm audit, and a lot of other things but nothing happened.

Also as you can see error told me to use the command with --force, I tried but nothing happened, and with --legacy-peer-deps, I get the error as unknown option.

What is bothering me the most is that everything was working completely right last night and I changed nothing at all but suddenly I’m getting this error today.


Open the folder you create with ng new and open the package.json file. In devDependencies change the version of "jasmine-core" 3.6.0 to 3.8.0 and "karma-jasmine-html-reporter" from 1.7.0 to 1.6.0 and save it. Then go back to Terminal and go to your project and run npm install. Now it works and you can run ng serve.

Edit 2021

"jasmine-core": "~3.8.0",
"karma-jasmine-html-reporter": "^1.7.0"
