Today is my first day of my first job and after setting up my development environment by updating node and npm on my Mac (OSX) I seem to have broken something. Every time I try to use npm in my commandline (npm init, npm install, etc.) I get this error message:
Error: Cannot find module 'npmlog'
at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:337:15)

There isn't much of an error message to go off and the stack trace isn't helping me all that much either. Here's what I have tried:
- Searched around Stackoverflow and though there are similar problems, people have been able to use
npm <something>to solve their problem, which I cannot do.
- Uninstalling and reinstalling npm – Didn't work because I can't use npm command at all so things like
sudo npm uninstall npm -gdon't work.
.npmdirectory and then cloned the github repo directly to the directory again.
Hopefully one of you have run into this before or have an idea of how to approach it. Any help is appreciated.
