apt – How to install npm with LTS version of Node.js?

I don’t understand why there is no simple way or explanation in the entire web on how to do this. sudo apt install npm installs npm with Node version 10.19.0, but I want to install the LTS version (16.13.0)

I tried following these steps to update to the LTS version of Node:

npm install n -g
n stable

And it does seem to install the LTS version, but the old version is not removed, and Ubuntu still uses version 10.19.0

So how can I either install npm with LTS Node, or at least install the LTS version and make Ubuntu use this version and not the older?
