I am trying to update specific package in my project. I have checked it using
npm outdated and then I run this command to update this package:
npm update nameofpackage i.e.,
npm update slugify.
My package.json file is not got updated after that, although when i run npm outdated again it shows no outdated package. It means it got updated but my package.json file still shows the older version of the package.
Please let me know how can I update my package.json file also. I have tried
npm update slugify --save also but it didn't worked for me.
The objective of the
npm update command is to update your
package-lock.json according to what you have specified in the
This is the normal behavior.
If you want to update your package.json file, you can use npm-check-updates:
npm install -g npm-check-updates.
You can then use these commands:
ncuChecks for updates from the package.json file
ncu -uUpdate the package.json file
npm update --saveUpdate your package-lock.json file from the package.json file
