The registry URL is pointing to https, you could try changing it by

npm config set registry=""

and then try installing the module. It may be possible that you are behind a proxy that is blocking secure (https) connections

If it doesn't work then may be you could manually try to download the current version of the module you are trying to install from the here

And run the command npm install grunt-preprocess-2.3.0.tgz
