Vue CLI project setup throws ENOENT: no such file or directory error

I am developing inside a docker container with node 12, and is trying to create a new Vue.js app and I am running the command:

vue create client

Next I am selecting the default template:

default (babel, eslint) 

However, before the setup completes, it exits with the following error:

✨  Creating project in /workspace/client.
⚙️  Installing CLI plugins. This might take a while...

npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:

My question is: how can I fix this issue? Also, is this a Docker-related issue?
