In the topic specification, I see that you are using the MDB5 1.0.0-beta6 package. Error log above concerns that you are trying to install the MDB4 React Pro one. If you are using MDB5 one - please check this page with the installation guide (link to the repository in command is a little bit different) If not - could you precise about which one you are using?

Keep coding!

I get the exact same error using that command when using either v4 or v5. I would prefer to use v5... but honestly I would just like to start using something that works! I purchased this a few months ago and while the documentation seems straightforward, I've been met with errors every time I try to install to an existing project.

I think I have this sorted out. I updated npm from a 12.x version to the current 14.x, then got a different error message about babel. I deleted my package.json file, then re-generated it with npm install. Then, I reran the mdb command for BS v5, and it looks like it took that time.

I'm glad you figured it out! If you have any other questions - feel free to ask :)

Keep coding!
