Cannot update to node 8 or later
I want to update to Node 8 using npm but I get an error:
Here is the log file, after I tried to run “sudo npm install -g n” following this article: https://www.hostingadvice.com/how-to/update-node-js-latest-version/ > 2. Update Node Using a Package Manager:

Thanks for your help!
Hmm, no clues from the log! What was displayed on the command-line?
(There is a hot topic about [crash] npm ERR! cb() never called! which includes instructions on using npm to use a canary build of npm to hopefully see the underlying error.)
So here is what the command line puts:
Unhandled rejection Error: EISDIR: illegal operation on a directory, open '/Users/me/.npm/_cacache/content-v2/sha512/2d/b7' at Error (native) npm ERR! cb() never called! npm ERR! This is an error with npm itself. Please report this error at: npm ERR! <https://npm.community>
I’ll check your link, thanks!
