Node-RED install on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish) - doesn't

Hi

at this time of writing (24th April 22) - the nodesource node.js install script does not yet support the latest Ubuntu LTS 22.04 Jammy distribution... This mean that our Node-RED install script will also (sort of) fail... in that it will resort to installing the default node.js 12 version that ships with Jammy and not v14 or better v16 that we would prefer...

No doubt they will fix it soon - but right now it will just cause you heartache and pain.

You can install them yourself for now (tested on Ubuntu 22.04):

sudo curl -LO https://nodejs.org/dist/v18.0.0/node-v18.0.0-linux-x64.tar.xz
sudo tar -xvf node-v18.0.0-linux-x64.tar.xz
sudo cp -r node-v18.0.0-linux-x64/{bin,include,lib,share} /usr/
node --version => v18.0.0

Any use?

PS, happy cake day.

Yes, happy cake day!

Yes. Can always do a manual install. But just a heads up for others when the default script fails. Hopefully they will fix soon.

(And yes. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun. Wonder how many candles there are?!
