NPM install hanging

Trying to install appium on a VM on my Mac Mini.
VM-AUTO:lib vm1$ npm -v

When doing so it just hangs on loadRequestedDeps → newt

Attached is url to a GIST of the log where it is hanging.

Please advise if someone knows how to get this moving along?

It appears I needed to change the network adapter to be on my ethernet lan connection for this installation to download and install. Smaller packages worked on the virtual network connection, but this was a big package with a lot of dependecies.
