NPM login error on build

I am getting an NPM login error on a brand new pages site.

||Installing project dependencies: npm install --progress=false|
|16:54:13.703|npm ERR! code E401|
|16:54:13.704|npm ERR! Incorrect or missing password.|

there is only 1 package that is public in the package.json so not sure why this would happen


Is no one else getting this issue?
I still get the same error. I have tried to create another pages and still have the same issue
