In some configurations the Squid HTTP Proxy seems to deny NPM requests when using the HTTPS protocol. In this case the error message returned by npm will contin a phrase like this:

"Unsupported Request Method and Protocol"

Try to reconfigure npm to use HTTP instead with this command:

$ npm config set registry

The currently used configuration can be read by issuing

$ npm config get registry
