Unable to get my plugins to install from CLI

Don’t suppose anyone has a suggestion as to why when I follow the getting started guide for plugins step by step I can never get them to install on my instance? I’ve restarted from scratch following the walk through several times and I always get this error when trying to use the install plugin script from the command line?
« node ./dist/server/tools/peertube.js auth list » shows the server and my admin account.
but « node ./dist/server/tools/peertube.js plugins install --path /home/don/peertube-plugin-telegrambot » always gives the same error. I’ve added a variety of licenses and tried adding « private »: true with no change. I’ve logged into the VPS with the peertube account and confirmed it has read access to the directory and files. Thought I’d ask for help before I nuke the instance and start everything over from scratch.

Is /home/don/peertube-plugin-telegrambot on the server?
Has the peertube user access to this folder?

I have gotten it working by publishing the plug-in then installing via the gui or commandline from NPM instead of local path, so i’m not stuck any more at least
