Actually there is, the RPM packages for MongoDB are "breaking". You can't auto-update with them without bringing your forum down. Several updates in the last two years were not just breaking, but very breaking. Fedora RPM for NodeJS is acceptable, but would put you several versions behind typically. For MongoDB, it would put you behind with updates while creating a risk that a seemingly trivial update to the OS would be expected to totally hose the database (3.4 to 3.6 to 4.0 are all updates that have to be manually handled for MongoDB with the actual data being massaged to handle it, but the OS just changes the engine version and lets the data stop working.) Its probably be best to start using the MongoDB repo instead of using RHEL and Fedora repo, with the news about them planning on removing MongoDB from their repo. I do that anyway. MongoDB is very good about their repos. You do the same with nodejs on Fedora too? There are lots of ways to do it, but I like this model for control. NVM is good, too.
