Team not found when removing maintainer

When trying to remove a package maintainer on the site<package_name>/access I get the error ‘Team not found’.

I used the cli tool as well and got the same error
npm owner remove <username> <package_name> --otp=<otp>

npm ERR! owner mutate Failed to update package metadata
npm ERR! code E404
npm ERR! 404 Team not found :
npm ERR! 404
npm ERR! 404 ‘’ is not in the npm registry.
npm ERR! 404 You should bug the author to publish it (or use the name yourself!)

The username is part of a team within an org, so I’m not sure what the problem is. I’m not sure why the team isn’t in the npm registry.
