The clasp uses requires Node.js >= v6.0.0. Let's install it:
[mythcat@desk google]$ sudo npm install n -g
/usr/local/bin/n -> /usr/local/lib/node_modules/n/bin/n
+ n@6.1.3
added 1 package from 4 contributors in 0.705s

       mkdir : /usr/local/n/versions/node/13.5.0
       fetch :
   installed : v13.5.0 (with npm 6.13.4)

Note: the node command changed location and the old location may be remembered in your 
current shell.
         old : /usr/bin/node

To reset the command location hash either start a new shell, or execute PATH="$PATH"
