Failed installation on Ubuntu UserLAnd Android

I followed the instructions on How to install Ghost locally on Mac, PC or Linux, creating a fresh directory. When I tried to install Ghost in that directory, the installation ran for a while but it eventually said the directory wasn’t empty. (It was empty when I created it.)

Steps to Reproduce

  1. sudo apt-get install nodejs -y
  2. npm install ghost-cli@latest -g
  3. ghost install local

An error occurred.

Message: ‘ENOTEMPTY: directory not empty, rmdir ‘versions/5.86.2/node_modules/sharp/vendor/8.14.5/linux-arm64v8/include/libpng16’’
