npm install instructions broken #5161

npm install can@5 --save

This will return

npm ERR! code ENOTSUP
npm ERR! notsup Unsupported engine for can-connect@3.2.1: wanted: {"npm":"^3.0.0"} (current: {"node":"8.12.0","npm":"6.10.1"})
npm ERR! notsup Not compatible with your version of node/npm: can-connect@3.2.1

The can-connect has a hard-coded dependency on npm@3.

npm install can@5 --save --engine-strict=false

gets past this, but... something needs to change. I'm not sure if the docs need to be amended, or can-connect needs to be fixed.

I suspect the bigger fix might be changing ^3.0.0 in can-connect to >=3.0.0.

thanks @justinbmeyer and @cherifGsoul for reacting so quickly!
