Ubuntu how to upgrade Node.js

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

I was running a Node service on Ubuntu and I was stuck on an old Node.js version.

Here’s what I did to update to the latest available:

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -

sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

The script points to the LTS version.

Change that number to 19, like, to use the current version.

And if 20/21 are out, just change that number.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching Summer 2024. Join the waiting list!
