Access denied error with node-gyp?

Hi there,

I'm building a deployment pipeline which uses a custom built script to ship files to servers via node & ssh but I'm apparently there's an issue with permissions somewhere. I'm at a loss.

This is the error:

+ sudo npx ssh:// --version

gyp ERR! configure error

gyp ERR! stack Error: EACCES: permission denied, stat '/root/.npm/_npx/55/lib/node_modules/repo/node_modules/cpu-features/.node-gyp/8.16.1'

gyp ERR! System Linux 5.4.92-flatcar

gyp ERR! command "/usr/bin/node" "/usr/lib/node_modules/npm/node_modules/node-gyp/bin/node-gyp.js" "rebuild"

gyp ERR! cwd /root/.npm/_npx/55/lib/node_modules/repo/node_modules/cpu-features

gyp ERR! node -v v8.16.1

gyp ERR! node-gyp -v v3.8.0

gyp ERR! not ok


throw err;

npm ERR! This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above.

Any idea how to solve the issue?
