Node installed but shows not-install-error

This is copy and paste from the terminal. I checked the version of node, but when I tried to upgrade node it gave me a "node not installed" error. Would anyone kindly explain it? Thanks!

Hello Victoria,

My first thoughts would be:

  • Are you certain you installed it with brew?
  • If so, maybe update the brew formulas with "brew update" first, and then trying again you "brew upgrade node"?

Cheers, Pedro
