dist-tags add does not add a tag

What I Wanted to Do

I wanted add a tag to my package

What Happened Instead

No tag was added

Reproduction Steps

$ npm dist-tags add @organization/package@1.0.0 next
+next @organization/package@1.0.0

$ npm dist-tags ls @organization/package
latest: 1.0.0


Trying to add a tag for another version didn’t work either. No tags have been added to the package

$ npm --versions
{ '@organization/package': '1.0.0',
  npm: '6.4.1',

$ node -p process.platform

After more than 30 minutes of trying to add tags thinking I was doing something wrong, all of a sudden I had many of the tags that I was trying to create.

Fun times.
