Error msg on NPM Install Serverless -g (using Git Bash)

#1

Error when installing npm serverless -g using git bash on windows 64bit env.

Linked to local certificate issue. Any suggestions for a fix?

Pls note, I have installed node v11.12, npm 1.1.62.

Error Msg is as follows:

$ npm install serverless -g

Hmm I’m not sure what the issue here is but the NPM version seems really old? I’m currently on 6.x.
