The program 'npm' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt install npm

    'npm' only ships with the upstream nodejs package or far newer versions of the nodejs package - the one in Ubuntu is also very very old and I suggest using the version from NodeJS's repositories instead (which will install npm as part of the nodejs package) – Thomas Ward Sep 20 '16 at 20:06
