I have checked the workspace and the npm is working fine to me. I don't understand. What would you like to install with npm?

I remembered how I did it. Please just try this, npm install bcryptjs and modify your code:

var bcrypt = require('bcrypt');


var bcrypt = require('bcryptjs');

Hope this help!
