No matter what I do, I get this error on the very first exercise of APIs and Micro services, npm. I read everything on the forum related to my question, but no solution for me. I tried sharing the link in the browser, sharing the the App link from Glitch, everything I can conceive of.

Here is the package the project files including the package.JSON file: https://glitch.com/edit/#!/my-proj-fcc

I dont know why it reports this error, everything is as it should be, I think.

Thanks and all helps are appreciated.

Hey - I just came across this challenge and ran into the same problem. The solution for me was to share the external app link from glitch rather than the editor’s URL.

In my case for example:
Incorrect link leading to error: https://glitch.com/edit/#!/stone-cut
Correct link that passes the challenge: https://stone-cut.glitch.me

(Looks like the documentation is a little unclear on this)
