Ubuntu how to upgrade Node.js

New Courses Coming Soon

Join the waiting lists

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.
