Update NodeJS from v6 to v8 in CentOS with yum

Try to update NodeJS from v6 to v8 in CentOS with yum. However, yum always installed v6 for me. Found the solution from https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/261950/why-wont-the-correct-new-version-of-node-js-install-on-centos-7

I run "curl --silent --location https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | bash -". But i find the latest version is 8. So, I run "curl --silent --location https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_8.x | bash -". But only 6.x raise when i run "yum install nodejs".

run "yum clean all; rm -f /etc/yum.repos.d/nodesource*" fix it.
