i have used the following commands for node js installation

sudo apt install curl
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo bash -
sudo apt install nodejs

3rd command gives the following error

The following packages have unmet dependencies: nodejs : Depends: python-minimal but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
