Hey all!

NodeJS version 4 isn't a supported version anymore - and what's more 
there are no packages for it for bionic.

To that end, all of the UI projects that are currently requesting 
node_version: 4 in their npm jobs [0] or who are using any of the 
templates that start with nodejs4- [1] are about to have a large amount 
of sad.

I would personally recommend updating to node_version: 10 - since that's 
the most recent LTS and would give us until 2021-04-01 [2] before we 
need to deal with things again.

BUT - I don't have a real opinion on course of action - I figure that's 
likely something to be discussed amongst the various UI projects. The 
only thing I have an opinion on is that the outcome probably shouldn't 
be "shrug, nodejs4 is fine". :)
