Angular: Trouble installing Angular due to SASS errors.

curiouswebster used Ask the Experts™
I navigated to my Angular project folder and typed:
npm install angular-material --save

I got errors, than first used "sudo su" and entered my password. But I got this error:

gyp verb ensuring nodedir is created /Users/newbieweb/Documents/Git/PuzzlePeace/node_modules/node-sass/.node-gyp/8.6.0
gyp WARN EACCES user "root" does not have permission to access the dev dir "/Users/newbieweb/Documents/Git/PuzzlePeace/node_modules/node-sass/.node-gyp/8.6.0"

What shall I do?

Is SaSS not installed?

How do I verify (or re-install) SaSS?
