POSTMAN Backend example - Cannot install project dependencies

Hi guys,
I am currently on Setting up Postmen and I’m trying to follow the tutorial but I’m stuck on step 5 when I run npm install

I am getting the following error:

npm WARN old lockfile so supplemental metadata must be fetched from the registry.

Can anyone help me with that?
Thanks.
