Failure to install node.js

I am installing in a HPC cluster environment and I get the following during installation:

Installing Node 4.6.2

Checking for previous version of node js…
which: no node in (/cm/shared/apps/cuda75/sdk/7.5.18/bin:/cm/shared/apps/gcc/4.8.2/bin:/usr/lib64/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/opt/ibutils/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/opt/dell/srvadmin/bin:/home/morina/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin)
Installing Node locally
Downloading and installing…

tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Do I have to manually compile and install node 4.6.2?
