npm-deprecate - Deprecate a version of a package
npm deprecate <pkg>[@<version>] <message>
Note: This command is unaware of workspaces.
This command will update the npm registry entry for a package, providing a deprecation warning to all who attempt to install it.
It works on version ranges https://semver.npmjs.com/ as well as specific versions, so you can do something like this:
npm deprecate my-thing@"< 0.2.3" "critical bug fixed in v0.2.3"
SemVer ranges passed to this command are interpreted such that they do include prerelease versions. For example:
npm deprecate firstname.lastname@example.org "1.x is no longer supported"
In this case, a version email@example.com will also be deprecated.
You must be the package owner to deprecate something. See the owner and adduser help topics.
To un-deprecate a package, specify an empty string ("") for the message argument. Note that you must use double quotes with no space between them to format an empty string.

This is a one-time password from a two-factor authenticator. It's needed when publishing or changing package permissions with npm access.
If not set, and a registry response fails with a challenge for a one-time password, npm will prompt on the command line for one.
