Can I use the NPM command to update NPM (for NodeJS)?

On Fedora 27 NPM comes installed with Node.

The latest version of NPM 6.0.0 has major new security auditing features, but the Fedora version is old.

NPM offers to update itself with:

npm install --global npm@6.0.0

Will this break something in Fedora? Maybe Fedora 28 will have NPM 6? (out tomorrow!) Thanks.
