Node.js Question

npm -v still showing version 2.x.x after installing npm3

I am starting to use Angular 2, which requires npm

3.x.x
, so I installed it with
npm install -g npm3
. The Angular 2 tutorials tell me to verify that I have npm
3.x.x
by running
npm -v
, however when I run that, it still says I have version
2.15.8
. It shows that I have version
3.10.7
if I run
npm3 -v
, but not if I run
npm -v
. Is this going to cause errors? Do I need to it to say I'm using version
3.x.x
when I run
npm -v
? If so, what do I need to do?

EDIT:
Node.js version:
node -v
reveals that I am using v4.4.7 (Angular2 requires something between
4.4.x
-
5.x.x
, so I should be good here)

OS: I am currently using Windows 10 on a PC, but have had the same issue with my Mac.

Answer

Upgrade npm using this command - npm install -g npm
