Unable to install node-red-contrib-serialport-rs485

Hi all,

I'm trieing to install node-red-contrib-serialport-rs485 om my raspberry pi (node red V 1.0.0) but i get following error:

npm ERR! code E404
npm ERR! 404 Not Found - GET https://registry.npmjs.org/node-red-node-serialport-rs485 - Not found
npm ERR! 404
npm ERR! 404 'node-red-node-serialport-rs485@latest' is not in the npm registry.
npm ERR! 404 You should bug the author to publish it (or use the name yourself!)

npm ERR! 404 Note that you can also install from a

npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:

Now i got it working in the past so i'm out of ideas what whent wrong.

Info about my setup:
Node red V1.0.0
NPM V6.14.8
NodeJS V10.21.0

any toughts?

Possibly because in the install command you typed node-red-node-serialport-rs485 instead of node-red-contrib-serialport-rs485

Ok strange, i just copied the command from the website,
