This is returning 203. That's usually a systemd message.

Exit codes 200 and above are used by systemd's service manager to indicate problems during process invocation.

See man systemd.exec for details.

203 specifically means:

The actual process execution failed (specifically, the execve(2) system call). Most likely this is caused by a missing or non-accessible executable file.

Check that /usr/bin/npm actually exists and has write permissions. Also check that you can run /usr/bin/npm yourself.

I usually see this problem from people who run manual installations (installing to other locations such as /usr/local/bin or not installing some dependencies). Installing nodejs from your package manager is usually your easiest route to a working npm.
