Install Node.js On Ubuntu 18.04 Using PPA

We will be installing nodejs on Ubuntu 1804 using personal package archive (PPA) which is more recent compared to the official Ubuntu repositories.

cd ~
curl -sL -o
sudo bash

Now you are ready to install the nodejs package:

sudo apt install nodejs

After the install completes, you can now check the version of nodejs package:

nodejs -v

The nodejs package using the method above also includes npm so there’s no need to install npm separately. To verify the version of npm type:

npm -v
