What's the answer?

I tried: npm update http-server -g. Apparently the package name is wrong. I'm not sure what else to put here.

The challenge says "Update the global package npm."

So the name of the package you need to update is not "http-server" but "npm" (itself).

npm update -g npm It is work for me
