Hi Bashir Orfani,

Did you have a specific question?

The way you update any npm package would be to use command npm update in your terminal, followed by the package you want to update.

Hi Brandon the question is update the global package npm i try this npm update -g package or npm update package -g but dosnt work.

It’s because the package that you need to update is npm. You have to pass npm as the argument.
