Accepted Answer

It looks like you have packages that are conflicting with new version of nodejs.

Try running the command below to remove all nodejs packages: yum remove node*

And then install nodejs again. sudo yum install nodejs npm

Try the following commands - The module n makes version-management easy: Linux/Mac

sudo npm install n -g
sudo n 0.12.2

For the latest stable version:

sudo n stable

Windows:

just reinstall node from the .msi in Windows from the node website.

@MDS and @Elizine thank you , its work.
