I wrote a guest blog about the migration here:
[1]https://www.ibmsystemsmag.com/Power-Systems/08/2019/RPMs-and-YUM-on-IBM-i-7-1
 
Note, that Node.js was unaffected by this change as no version we shipped
via yum has *ever* been supported on IBM i 7.1.

Yes, due to a security issue (V7R1 doesn't support new enough
protocols),
all of the yum packages for V7R1 were removed late last year.

Unfortunately, you'll need to move to V7R2 to use Nodejs.

There may be some yum repo mirrors around where you could find the
packages
for V7R1, but I wouldn't recommend it. Even if you do find them, they
aren't being supported by IBM anymore which means they aren't getting
security patches.
