Installing node on debian based linux (omghax)

So yeah, installing node is sort of a stupid round about adventure in “do I want to deal with the old packaged version, or Do I want to bother installing it manually and being on the hook for updating it?”

I propose a middle ground with twice the madness

first, install npm via apt

sudo apt install npm

THEN install n with npm globally

sudo npm install n -g

then upgrade node with n

sudo n install latest

now update npm with npm

sudo npm install -g npm
