How to solve the npm Err! Unexpected end of JSON input

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to solve the npm install error: Unexpected end of JSON input while parsing near ‘…ic”:“^3.0.0”}.

When you try to install a new package from the npm, sometimes you will see this following error due to the cache folder of npm gets corrupted.

npx create-nuxt-app my-app
npm ERR! Unexpected end of JSON input while parsing near '...ic":"^3.0.0"}
,"devDep'

npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:
npm ERR!     /Users/saigowtham/.npm/_logs/2020-07-25T06_00_52_574Z-debug.log
Install for [ 'create-nuxt-app@latest' ] failed with code 1

To fix this error, we need to forcefully clean the cache by using the following command.

npm cache clean --force

Now, try to install the package again it will install without any errors.
