  1. @RamWebDev I had this same issue and I was able to fix it by running the following in terminal:

    yarn config set registry https://registry.yarnpkg.com
    

    I’m guessing that somehow your registry got changed to “true”.
    You can check this by going to wherever your global .yarnrc file is located and opening it.
    My .yarnrc was located in my home directory on OSX, and it was showing my registry set to “true”

    This may have happened as a result of switching to a private npm registry a while back and running yarn config set registry incorrectly, as mentioned here:
