@types/node is not found in the npm registry

I'm trying to run through the Angular 2 Quickstart with TypeScript.

When I try to run the npm install command I am getting a ton of errors like this:

npm ERR! 404 Not Found
npm ERR! 404
npm ERR! 404 '@types/node' is not in the npm registry.
npm ERR! 404 You should bug the author to publish it
npm ERR! 404 It was specified as a dependency of 'angular-quickstart'
npm ERR! 404
npm ERR! 404 Note that you can also install from a
npm ERR! 404 tarball, folder, or http url, or git url.

It is very frustrating to jump into something new only to find their quick start documentation does not work.

The solution appears to be to update NodeJS and npm.

I downloaded a new version of NodeJS from the web site. After it was installed, you can update npm like this:

npm install npm@latest -g

Check your versioning like this:

node -v
npm -v

This upgrade appears to have solved my issues.
