Update (sub)dependency only in package-lock.json

You might need to update a dependency only in your package-lock.json file, because there might be a security vulnerability for the version you use but you can’t update the dependency in your package.json that uses that dependency. You can use --no-save and --package-lock-only options as in the example below

npm install y18n@4.0.1 --no-save --package-lock-only
