Help Update Global Package npm... I think I'm losing my mind.

Challenge task under the npm basics... I'm not quite sure what I've got wrong here...

Code entered:

npm update -g

Please guide me to the correct answer, I've exhausted all my attempts...

Hi Chike,

The package name needs to be between the update and the -g parts. The package name is npm also, so you have: npm update npm -g

Hope this helps.
