Node.js ia a server-side, JavaScript run-time environment, while npm is a Node.js package manager. In this short tutorial, you’ll learn how to install the long-term support (LTS) version of Node.js from a secure and reliable source on Ubuntu 17.04 and Linux Mint 18.2. Installing Node.js also installs npm.

The secure and reliable source we’ll use is NodeSource, an outfit that provides support for Node.js.
