The install fails. Problems seems to be the request to: https://github.com/debris/bignumber.js.git

The error message is:

npm ERR! Error while executing:
npm ERR! C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\cmd\git.EXE ls-remote -h -t https://github.com/debris/bignumber.js.git
npm ERR!
npm ERR! error: error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert protocol version while accessing https://github.com/debris/bignumber.js.git/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack
npm ERR! fatal: HTTP request failed

Do you know cause and action to solve it?

  • Which version of git are you using? Also during installation it offers two options for SSL library, you can try switching between them.
