Error in ionic installation
I am installing ionic via sudo npm install ionic -g
and getting the following error

The issue is also listed in ionic forums: - https://forum.ionicframework.com/t/installing-ionic-not-successful-solved/36050/7
I have tried changing node, npm, cordova versions multiple times but every time I get this error so I guess this has nothing to do with versions. Also at some places it was mentioned that installing ionic from root might help so I have done that also.
Kindly help me figure out this one. Thanks
