Warning during serverless install causing build to fail

Seeing the following warning when installing serverless, which is causing our build to fail:

ERROR: warning serverless > json-refs > path-loader > superagent@3.8.3: Please note that v5.0.1+ of superagent removes User-Agent header by default, therefore you may need to add it yourself (e.g. GitHub blocks requests without a User-Agent header). This notice will go away with v5.0.2+ once it is released.
At C:\projects\build\serverless.build.ps1:25 char:5
+ yarn global add serverless
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anything we can add in our ps script to suppress these?

    npm write warnings to stderr, which is treated by (custom PowerShell host where AppVeyor runs PowerShell code), as error. Safest way is to run npm command in CMD mode.
