Question – How can I update Node.js and npm for future versions?

I just installed Node.js and npm (for additional modules).
How can I update Node.js and the modules I am using to the latest versions
NPM can do it? or do I have to remove and reinstall Node.js and npm to get the next versions?
I followed https://github.com/nodejs/node/wiki/Installation and the next section npm.

Answer

Found this really accurate way to update the node on another user blog, you can do it by installing n:

sudo npm cache clean -f
sudo npm install -g n
sudo n stable

Install the current stable version of the.node Anyway, I recommend using.nvm

Also if you want to upgrade to a particular version, follow this:

sudo npm cache clean -f
sudo npm install -g n
sudo n <specific version>
