Dont run npm with sudo

If you install node with root access, npm will ask you to run the sudo command every time you try to install a global package.

The npm docs suggest that you either reinstall npm with a node version manager or change npm's default directory.

It is better, in my opinion, to stay with the default and reinstall with nvm (or your preferred version manager; n is a popular option).

You can run this bash command (as per the documentation) to download nvm:

# you can use curl
curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nvm-sh/nvm/v0.35.1/install.sh | bash
# or wget
wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nvm-sh/nvm/v0.35.1/install.sh | bash
