Topic: Installation error: 'The project you were looking for could not be found.'

AB free asked 4 years ago


I am a MDB pro user. While trying to re-install my project on a computer, I am getting an error while installation.

After running npm install, it should completing installation. It is not completing the installation.

Following is the error: (pro key and pc name hidden in error below)

npm ERR! Error while executing:
npm ERR! /usr/local/bin/git ls-remote -h -t
npm ERR!
npm ERR! remote: The project you were looking for could not be found.
npm ERR! fatal: repository '' not found
npm ERR!
npm ERR! exited with error code: 128

npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:
npm ERR!     /Users/my-pc-name/.npm/_logs/2020-04-07T17_39_24_556Z-debug.log

Can you help me with this if there is some problem with your Gitlab repository?

Hi @AB,

I already test an installation method on macOS, and for me, it works fine. Can you show me your package.json file? (without your personal token of course)

Best, Kuba

I just found out that the '' link says Page Not Found . Access to the folder seems missing after logging in.

Does this seem to be causing the error 'The project you were looking for could not be found.' ?

Hi @AB, although the license usage is for life, GitLab access, updates, and premium support expire after 12 months.

You'll need to renew your access here:

As per your suggestion I've renewed the access.

Will this change our old key?


Also, would you direct me to the steps to view the key again?


Mateusz Leciejewski staff commented 4 years ago


your old key should be valid, but if you haven't saved it, you should generate it again with the help of this guide
