    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major

    • Environment:

      OSX 10.12.5
      alex@alex ~/P/e/tracking> cordova -v


      After plugins correctly installing for weeks, adding new plugins is suddenly failing with the following:

      alex@alex ~/P/e/tracking> cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-firebase
      Error: Failed to fetch plugin cordova-plugin-firebase via registry.
      Probably this is either a connection problem, or plugin spec is incorrect.
      Check your connection and plugin name/version/URL.
      Error: npm: Command failed with exit code 254 Error output:

      It keeps trying to find /file:tools/ inside the root of my project. It doesn't matter which plugin I try to install
