javascript – Error when I kick npm install in wsl2 ubuntu

When I run npm install, this error always happens in my project. Back then, I never found this error on any machine. But, this is my first try on WSL2 Ubuntu. Here is the error.

I have no idea what happens, I think my dev environment in WSL2 is perfect. But poor me, I was wrong. Please help me. Is there anyone who got this error too and already found the solution?
