'meteor mongo' simply doesn't work

I am about to scream in frustration!! I am running the latest version of meteor, have updated, reupdated, removed, re-added the mongo package and this happens over and over again:
`λ meteor mongo
throw error;

TypeError: port should be a number or string: null

I don’t know what to do!! Keep In mind that this is a completely new project I started to see if I had done something wrong in the last one, but nope. This is an error that comes packaged right out of the box.

A similar issue was reported a little while back here:

I did remove and re-add mongo. No change. Any idea how to remove ALL dependencies and add them back? or do I have to do it one by one?

Update: Did it and no luck still.
