Cannot Install node modules

I am always getting errors when I attempt to install any node modules. Everytime it throws a different error related to some node-gyp failure. I am not sure if it is related to my node version which I changed to v12.0.0 and I haven’t specified the npm version in my package.json but whenever I try to install packages manually it throws the error. I cannot even install express!
Please correct me if I am not using the correct npm version or installing packages in a wrong way. ps: my project is a private project.

How are you installing the package? Through the Add Package feature or the Command Line.

Attempted using both ways. Both don’t work for me. @xXProGamerXx
