Code in in backoffice but reporting as POS2 as added via pos2 project.

NodeJS 16.x will be the next Active LTS around October so we should check and try to fix this in the next 1-2 month to be able to find/fix whatever other issues are behind it.

Problem is line 53 of modules/org.openbravo.client.kernel/build-scripts/install-deps.js

the rmDirSync('node_modules_global')
Fails if that folder does not exist (and we delete it in our pre-install file)

Possible fixes: force=true or check if exists before doing the rmDirSync call.
