Need help with why I can't install a node. node-red-node-watson

Node of interest:

I have it installed on my NUC and it works.

But this is my day to day machine and not one of my always on machines.

I'm wanting to use/install it on there but can't.

I accept/appreciate that it is > 1 year out of date.

But if I go to the library and look for that node it is listed and shows the speech nodes listed.

The machine onto which I want to install it is a RasPi V3b running Buster.

Just wanting to ask if it can/should work on that machine.

Thanks in advance.

If I try to update it I get this:

I just installed it on a Pi running bullseye and it seems to have gone OK

I sometimes find removing a node and re-installing it is the quickest way of sorting some things out

This is what I did:

pi@TimePi:~ $ cd .node-red
pi@TimePi:~/.node-red $ node-red-restart
Restarted Node-RED
pi@TimePi:~/.node-red $ npm install node-red-node-watson

If I go to the GUI, this is what I see.


Sod's law stepped in and now it seems to be ok.
