My machine runs the Ubuntu operating system.

How do I install Node.js using Node.js Version Manager (Nvm)?

Thanks in advance!

Open a new terminal window on your machine (CTRL+ALT+T keyboard shortcut).

Then run the script to install Nvm:

curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nvm-sh/nvm/v0.39.1/install.sh | bash

When that's done, verify that it was installed correctly:

nvm --version

That should output a version number.

Then, you can install the latest version of Node.js:

nvm install node

When the installation process is complete, test to make sure Node.js was installed correctly:

node --version

You can read more on their GitHub page: https://github.com/nvm-sh/nvm.

Nvm provides a good guide in their documentation: https://github.com/nvm-sh/nvm#installing-and-updating.
