Can't install NPM immediately after NodeJS - "unmet dependencies" errors

No specific Bitcoin Bounty has been announced by author. Still, anyone could send Bitcoin Tips to those who provide a good answer.

I am getting this error when I am trying to install npm:

Command: sudo apt install npm

Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 npm : Depends: node-gyp (>= 0.10.9) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
  • Operation system: Ubuntu/Mint

Thank you
