Solved Error while update npm-package
on my WSL-Ubuntu also on my VPS I get an error while I would like to update an app with cloudron-cli.
It said to me, that I should update the npm package of cloudron-cli
sudo npm install -g email@example.com changed 121 packages, and audited 122 packages in 4s 13 packages are looking for funding run `npm fund` for details 2 vulnerabilities (1 moderate, 1 high) To address issues that do not require attention, run: npm audit fix Some issues need review, and may require choosing a different dependency.

I have no clue what can I do to solve this problem.
@roru2k20 are you by any chance running the npm install command withing a repository which contains a package.json or so?
Also which nodejs and npm versions are you using?
Further it is not clear to me, if the install or the audit fix fails. The latter should not be run when installing the cli, this is something you would run as a developer developing the package. We are updating the cli package as we see fit, not all automatic security warnings issued by npm are relevant, so no worries.
