npm doesn't update package for github modules with semver

Original post - I’m having this same issue:

https://npm.community/t/npm-update-doesnt-update-package-json-for-github-modules-with-
semver/538

When running npm update [git pkg name] and the pkg name is a git repo with the semver versioning it is not updated the same as an npm publish repo when running npm update [npm pkg name]


npm version 6.9.0
MacOS 10.14
