bash <(curl -sL

All seems good but when I issue node-red-start I get the error (sorry for not being able to wrap it in a code box but I don't have the option to in this editor);

Use sudo systemctl enable nodered.service to autostart Node-RED at every boot
Use sudo systemctl disable nodered.service to disable autostart on boot

To find more nodes and example flows - go to
getFlows: async function(opts) {
