What answer did you give that "does not go through"?

In the end, I made it. the answer is ''npm update npm -g'' but I don't think the task is clear though. I tried previously ''npm update -g'' and ''npm update package -g''

It may seem a bit tricky because it's the npm package itself is being updated, so the app is "npm", the command is "update", the option is "-g" for global, and then you name the package being updated, which is also "npm" in this case.
