NodeJS Install Tutorial

Hello, i want to follow the tutorial from the teachers notes but it didn't work for me. I was getting always some weird errors that packages don't exist.

I followed this Tutorial to install NodeJS on a Virtual Machine. (VirtualBox)

Try the one from the official site instead: https://nodejs.org/en/download/package-manager/#debian-and-ubuntu-based-linux-distributions

USE Debian and Ubuntu based Linux distributions

It might say that Curl is not installed (it did for me). In that case install it. Instructions will pop up. just in case it doesn't: sudo apt install curl

Curl sends a get-request to the link you're providing, if you provide a download-link, it's essentially the same as clicking on the download-link from the terminal. The pack will download and you open it.
