Trying to install bitcore with npm but getting this error:

npm install -g bitcore

What should I do?

Do it with passion, or not at all.

Try to execute/run the code "npm install -g bitcore" by adding sudo"root privileges" because it will solve most of the permissions problems.
You can check this link for more information ------>
If npm was invoked with root privileges, then it will change the uid to the user account or uid specified by the user config, which defaults to nobody. Set the unsafe-perm flag to run scripts with root privileges.

If this doesn't work with you, try this "npm install -g --unsafe-perm=true bitcore" source ---->
