Installing nodejs on Raspberry Pi

On the blynk help center is a set of instructions to install Node.js on linux. I used the automatic set of commands and it appears that everything installed correctly. However when checking for versions installed the npm -v produced command not found.

Scrolling back into the installation messages I see this notice came up:

Suggested packages:
npm

Do I need to start over and try the manual process or can I add npm seperately?

Still not sure why npm didn’t install but I took a different route and reinstalled PI OS version that had Node-red already installed. It might have been an old version for arm6 instead of arm 7. You can close this out.
