ENOENT: no such file or directory when installing react-navigation in react-native project

I’m getting a few errors while I’m installing react-navigation in my react native project with

npm install @react-navigation/native enter image description here The installation goes halfway and stops for a couple minutes and puts this error out. Can someone please help me solve this problem

The navigation.navigate('') is not working whenever I am trying to navigate a button to another screen. I feel like there is some problem with the navigation thing in general as almost the same thing happens when I try installing the dependencies of the navigation into the project with

npm install react-native-reanimated react-native-gesture-handler react-native-screens react-native-safe-area-context @react-native-community/masked-view

I am just starting out so I don’t have much idea what I’m doing wrong. I keep digging and post here if I find the solution.

I was installing stuff while the server was running. Just stopping the server and installing again fixes it.
