@obsolete29 don't! Leave it to your distro to update this together with NodeJS.

Thank me later.

@obsolete29 no idea what you're using but the last thing you want is a mix of distro installed and manually "sudoed" packages somewhere in /usr/local or *gasp* $HOME

Been there. It was hell.

This is very easy on e.g. Fedora:
developer.fedoraproject.org/te

Where you can install NodeJS with a version to your liking this way:

> sudo dnf module install nodejs:14

See "dnf module list nodejs" for options.

Magic!

(And NPM is bundled with NodeJS - you do not want incompatible versions here)
