Odoo - overriding old api method with new api?

I'm trying to override

method, but I'm getting an error. Am I using wrong decorator? (tried,
but every one of those give an error).
For example doing this:

def compute_refund(mode='refund'):
inv_ids = self.env.context.get('active_ids', [])
for invoice in self.env['account.invoice'].browse(inv_ids):
if invoice.employee_invoice:
if mode == 'refund':
raise Warning(_("This Refund Method is not supported for employee invoices"))
if mode == 'cancel':
#Unrelate such invoice from insurance.commission.payment record
invoice.commission_payment_id = None
for line in invoice.invoice_line:
line.insurance_commission_ids.write({'state': 'confirm'})
line.insurance_commission_ids = None
return super(account_invoice_refund, self).compute_refund(mode=mode)

But it just gives this error, when trying to run the method:

I was thinking too deeply. The mistake I made was that I simply forgot to add self argument when defining method. And multi decorator was needed.
