LOTS of trouble installing particle cli

When I run:

bash <( curl -sL https://particle.io/install-cli )

I get the following error.

bash: /dev/fd/63: No such file or directory
robotics3@robotics3-LifeBook-S6510:~$ (23) Failed writing body

I am running Ubuntu 17.10 (LXDE)

I tried directly installing npm and particle-cli and everything works till I actually run particle setup and then I get a variety of errors including a hang when installing plugins. If possible, I would like to solve the initial problem of getting the curl install to work.


Let me ping someone that might be able to help, @rickkas7 or @ParticleD are you able to assist?

The best way to troubleshoot this is to do it in two steps so you can better see what is failing:

curl -sL https://particle.io/install-cli > install.sh
bash install.sh
