Script commands incompatibility

From @xcottos:

Hi all, it's not a convector issue but more an Ubuntu 18.04 one but I want to share it with you: there were some ppl receiving an error in Ubuntu 18.04 while invoking the cc:invoke script defined like that: "cc:invoke": "f() { chaincode-manager --config ./$2.$1.config.json --user $3 invoke $1 ${@:4}; }; f". The error was something like sh: 1: bad substitution. It's because by default linux uses sh (symlinked to dash in Ubuntu) for executing the npm scripts. For this reason if anyone asks for help on that the procedure is the following: 1) updating npm to a version >= 5 2) npm config set script-shell /bin/bash this is general for all ppl having the issue, while for Ubuntu users if the command npm -v still shows the old version of npm (like 3.5.7) they have to: 3) sudo apt purge npm 4) ln -s /usr/local/bin/npm /usr/bin/npm 5) npm config set script-shell /bin/bash it's because of bash caching the binaries links as documented here https://askubuntu.com/questions/1036278/npm-is-incorrect-version-on-latest-ubuntu-18-04-installation
