To install Node.js on Ubuntu, follow these steps:

sudo apt-get install npm


  1. Verify that the installation was successful by running the following command:

curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.35.3/install.sh | bash

  2. Run the following command to install the latest version of Node.js:

nvm install node

1
node -v


This will display the version of Node.js that was installed.
