I have been trying to figure out how to successfully install an npm package hosted on my Github account. It works locally on my mac but not from my Digital Ocean Droplet.
Here are the guides I have looked at it and tried: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/permission-denied-publickey-using-git-from-digitalocean-console-forge-user
and several others!
I regenerated new keys and uploaded them to GitHub but still nothing.
The command I am trying to run is:
npm install git+ssh://github.com/mujibsardar/nodebb-theme-askavan.git
35 verbose argv "/usr/bin/node" "/usr/bin/npm" "install" "git+ssh://github.com/mujibsardar/nodebb-theme-askavan.git" 36 verbose node v10.16.0 37 verbose npm v7.18.1 38 error code 128 39 error command failed 40 error command git --no-replace-objects ls-remote ssh://email@example.com/mujibsardar/nodebb-theme-askavan.git 41 error firstname.lastname@example.org: Permission denied (publickey). 41 error fatal: Could not read from remote repository. 41 error 41 error Please make sure you have the correct access rights 41 error and the repository exists. 42 verbose exit 128
here are the permissions on my .ssh directory
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Feb 1 21:21 . drwx------ 9 root root 4096 Jun 18 22:34 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 103 Jun 19 16:33 authorized_keys -rw------- 1 root root 411 Jun 18 18:59 id_ed25519 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 103 Jun 18 18:59 id_ed25519.pub -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1548 Jun 18 18:26 known_hosts
My apologies if I missed to share something more fundamental. Any help would be highly appreciated!

Hi there @avansardar,
As discussed below, the fix was to upgrade the Node version from v10.x to v14.x as per this tutorial here.
The setup actually looks all good. What I could suggest is to try to SSH to GitHub by adding the
-vargument to see some debug messages:
Feel free to share the output here.
Alternatively, I would recommend using HTTP rather than SSH to install the package:
Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
