Does the official Meteor install sh install node & npm?


I have installed Meteor on many machines using curl | sh and normally it works splendidly the first time. Last, however, it did not.

I installed it on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 minimal and while all the installation procedure went painless, my app would not run since it did not have nodejs.
After installing nodejs, the mup deploy did not work and I suspect that is because of the nodejs version I installed (4.xx)

Do I have to explicitly ask for any specific version of node when I apt-get it? What about npm? Any version conflicts?
