Node 8.0 install, but npm stuck on old version

Installed node version v8 on windows 10. It says it comes delivered with npm 5....
But it's stuck on 3.5.3

λ npm i -g npm
npm ERR! Windows_NT 10.0.14393

npm ERR! argv "npm" "i" "-g" "npm"

npm ERR! node v8.0.0

npm ERR! npm v3.5.3


npm ERR! Cannot find module 'internal/fs'
npm ERR!

npm ERR! If you need help, you may report this error at:
npm ERR! https://github.com/npm/npm/issues

npm ERR! Please include the following file with any support request:
npm ERR! C:\Users\user\npm-debug.log

What i've done:

  • Uninstall node and reinstall it

  • Install a different version of node (7.7.0) and see if it updated npm

  • used npm clean cache -f

And none of these things worked...
So any ideas?

I had the same problem and had to run

npm install npm@latest -g

from the command line. I was told node and npm versions will be different.
