In a VM that hadnt been started in a couple months , bench update ( with or without upgrade , reset etc) fails with this: http://dpaste.com/0TJZZ7Z
The web instance is accessible and reports it is at
ERPNext: v8.0.40 (master)
Frappe Framework: v8.0.60 (master)
I have subsequently performed an upgrade of the Ubuntu guest, and npm.
I installed VM last week:
The npm WARN is not dangerous.
Hope this helps.
Indeed, the update of nodejs was needed.
Please close this subject.
