In my case, I solved this by installing an other version of node with the procedure described on adafruit webpage. I get this link from the npn page of rpi-gpio

You should remove node and npm with sudo apt-get autoremove --purg npm node then install node according to adafruit instructions and then run npm install rpi-gipo
