update npm packages to latest versions - 06-15-22

I was doing some housekeeping on a Node.JS project today. Wanted to update all the dependencies to their latest versions. At first I tried npm update but come to find out that is ment more for upgrading single packages and not major versions. In the end after some googling I found npm-check-updates.

To upgrade the dependencies of a project without installing anything else I ran:

$ npx npm-check-updates -u

It updated the package.json so it must be followed up by a:

$ npm i

Which will install the new packages and update the package-lock.json.
