I am trying to install web3 for ethereum but it keeps sticking on this fetchMetadata


Do you have the latest version of npm otherwise you can install the latest version with:

npm install npm@latest -g

Another method is to install yarn and try it that way, you can install yarn with the following line:

npm install -g yarn

And if you are using proxy you'll need to clear your https proxy settings:

npm config rm proxy
npm config rm https-prox
