  • Maybe you need node (dependency to bower work), verify with:

    node -v

    If not installed, install node with:

    curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -
    sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

    Then try install bower with NPM as admin access:

    sudo npm install -g bower
