Node-red-contrib-usb installation not possible


I´m trying to install the package "node-red-contrib-usb", but it aported with error.

2021-01-14T10:25:04.862Z npm install --no-audit --no-update-notifier --save --save-prefix="~" --production node-red-contrib-usb@1.0.0

Does anybody know a soution for this?
Node red runs on a revolution pi

That is saying that the pi cannot access that url. Does the pi have access to the internet? If so try again in case it was a temporary network issue.
If you still get the same error then connect to the pi in a terminal and run
If that fails then you have a network issue preventing access to that url. Check on your PC (which I assume is on the same network) that in a browser you can browse to

Hey, I got the solution, the name server didn´t worked.

But now I get another error:

Try, if you have not already, installing whatever in your OS is the equivalent of build-essential in Debian based distributions.

I see on the node's page in the flows directory that it has not been updated for over 5 years, so it is highly likely that it does not work any more.
However, if you want to carry on, there is an issue relating to this on the node's github page, submitted in 2016 and not addressed, that suggests that you may get over this issue by installing libudev-dev. So if your OS uses apt then
sudo apt-get install libudev-dev
