    This would be due to a pathing issue in your terminal. Please make sure you have setup NVM for your shell using the following commands.

    export NVM_DIR=“$HOME/.nvm”
    [ -s “$NVM_DIR/” ] && \. “$NVM_DIR/”  # This loads nvm
    [ -s “$NVM_DIR/bash_completion” ] && \. “$NVM_DIR/bash_completion”  # This loads nvm bash_completion

    Verify that you can check the nativescript version from the terminal

    nativescript --version

    If that returns the correct version number please try the create-client again.
