How to deprecate a package in the GitHub registry?

Tried running this and didn’t work :frowning:

npm deprecate --verbose @test-engineering/test-roles "This package has been deprecated and superseded by @test-engineering/test-r - github.com/test-engineering/test-common/blob/master/packages/test"

I end up with this error:

npm info it worked if it ends with ok

npm verb cli   '/tests/**/.nvm/versions/node/v12.20.1/bin/npm',
