Dashboard not installing correctly

Please excuse my ignorance as I am very new to the Node red and Raspberry pi's in general.

I can ping google.com so I know that I am connected to the internet.

The error the I am getting is as follows:

npm ERR! Error while executing:
npm ERR! /usr/bin/git ls-remote -h -t ssh://git@github.com/node-red/node-red-dashboard.git
npm ERR! 
npm ERR! ssh: connect to host github.com port 22: No route to host
npm ERR! fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Thanks in advance!

Is that from the PI where node-red is running?

Also, what command are you running? How are you installing dashboard?

Yes it is from the same PI.

The command I am using to install is:

npm i node-red-dashboard

How did you install node-red?

Edit: Also, can you ping github.com and does the install still fail if you try again?

I installed Node-red with

bash <(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/node-red/linux-installers/master/deb/update-nodejs-and-nodered)

I cannot ping github.com and I cannot figure out why. Installing the dashboard still fails even after trying again.

You have a network problem then. Exactly what do you see when you run ping github.com

Edit: Also, can you ping

When I ping github.com I get this:

From ( icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

When I ping I get basically the same thing:

From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable

So it isn't a DNS lookup issue. Something is stopping you getting to github.

Do you have any idea what it could be?

That isn't the address I posted - it was

However, assuming that is a mistype in your post rather than when you ran the command it is most likely a firewall somewhere. Can you access github from another machine on the same network? You can go to github.com in a browser. How about on your mobile network if you have one.

That was just a typo on my end sorry about that. And I can access github from another computer the same network so I don't think its a firewall issue.

Almost certainly it is the firewall on the node red machine.
