What package is being update?

Hello. When i type in 'npm update -g' it say that it haven't included the packed. The question never gave the package name to include so I'm confused

Hi Kaya Jackson

The global package name is "npm"

So the command would look like this:

npm update -g npm

The package name follows any flags you have in the execution call. I just tested this out and that seems to do it! I hope that helps!
