Install NodeJS 6 in CentOS8
By the time of this writing, the latest NodeJS is V14.3.0, so there is no meaning to install Node6, which is no longer supported.
But I still wanted to give it a try, by following those commands:
# Install Node.js 6.x repository curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | bash - # Install Node.js and npm apt-get install -y nodejs
Unfortunately, I got not just warnings, but it's failed to installed.
Then I gave up, and tried to install the higher version of NodeJS by following this tutorial:
But I stuck at this command:
sudo dnf module list nodejs
It throw the errors:
Failed to download metadata for repo 'nodesource'
Believe it or not, it's not easy to find out the solution from Google. Finally, I figured it out at: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/centos-redhat-fedora-linux-remote-yum-repo-configuration/
But in my case, I need to remove the repo, I installed when I tried to install NodeJS6, which are:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ sudo rm nodesource-el8.repo cd /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/ sudo rm NODESOURCE-GPG-SIGNING-KEY-EL sudo yum clean all
