Error when trying JIRA Hello World for npm start (Atlassian Connect Express)


I am new to JIRA development. I wanted to create a Hello World plugin using Atlassian Connect Express framewok. I followed the steps as shows in : 

I am getting some errors which I cannot resolve.

When I run 

npm start

the following error is generated.

Hi Shaikh,

I don't see that error when I follow the steps on that page. It looks like you just have a stray " character somewhere, possibly in your config.json file. Have you made any changes to the template after you created it? If so, can you paste those changes here?
