I've been following a tutorial to set up a simple voting application just for experimentation purposes but after installing truffle, it seems it won't connect.

Heres the error I'm getting when I try anything with truffle

Literally any help is appreciated!!

Check the last version of Node.js that you have installed.

Older versions of Node.js (older than 7.6) does not support Async functions.

See this thread on Stackoverflow: SyntaxError: Unexpected token function - Async Await Nodejs
