Raspberry NPM Node Red install error

running the install script for raspbery (bash curl ...) on raspberry 3b raspbian buster with node version 12.8.3 and npm Version 6.14.6 finishes with no errors (all green), but i do get error starting node-red-start indicating node-red is not fully installed.

It seems that current node red is not fully found in npm! I cant post full install log due to fforum restrictions regarding links, but here is the error part:
Now install Node-RED

Now create basic package.json for the user and move any global nodes

oh thx! I wasn't aware that the problem lies with npm itself.

If you wait till the error in the link is fixed and then run the script again it should be ok.
