In order to use the latest SPFx Version 1.14 I'm trying to setup my dev env.

I'm stuck at installing the latest yeoman generator, when doing 
npm install @microsoft/generator-sharepoint@latest -g

it hangs forever at 
[###...............] - idealTree:express: sill fetch manifest safe-buffer@^5.0.1

and does not get ready.

Here are the versions I've installed:

node: v14.19.0

npm: 7.24.1

yeoman: 4.3.0

gulp cli: 2.3.0

 

npm list --global --depth=0
+-- @pnp/cli-microsoft365@4.2.0
+-- gulp-cli@2.3.0
+-- gulp@3.9.1
+-- minizlib@2.1.2
+-- npm@7.24.1
`-- yo@4.3.0

 

Any help would be very much appreciated!
Thomas
