Looking to use Node Red, it looks like I made a mistake in trying the update-nodejs-and-nodered
script. This is on a Pi 3 attached to a recent Pi-Top laptop (which is going to be returned because of what appears to be a design fault with the USB connector, but that's another story) and running the SD card supplied with the Pi-Top. Other than some hardware-specific tweaks I think this gives the latest OS version, whatever that might be.
The first time I ran the script, it seemed to complete OK, but then reported that (IIRC) the NR installation was incomplete and to re-run the same script. On doing this, it stopped at:
Code: Select all
Node.js LTS Failed to install Node.js: Exit
which is all a bit curious, given that it didn't baulk at this step first time around, though I don't recall seeing the LTS suffix the first time BICBW.
Anyone able to offer any advice as to how best to recover from here please? This is a Pi that was previously running NR OK, but in starting a new project I wanted to check that my NR version was as up to date as possible. Sorry, but I'm not an experienced Linux user - my whole interest is focused on using NR so would appreciate the simplest solution to recovering a working (but hopefully updated) NR installation
