How can I upgrade Ghost with npm problem?

I followed the directions here to upgrade to the newest version of Ghost (0.11.4). When I got to run the command npm install --production, I get an error message that npm has unmet dependencies and that I am holding broken packages. What can I do? Thanks.

Have you tried running

npm cache clean \
&& rm -rf node_modules \
&& npm install --production

That’s what is suggested if you’re met with unexpected results. Warnings are not so much an issue, unless they result in the installation failing and/or your installation of Ghost ceasing to function.
