Ok so I'm running Magento 2.0.6 and I have installed it via the GitHub repo.

So as I cannot use the backend upgrade tool, when I upgrade Magento 2 I'm used to run the following:

git pull origin
composer update

However, when I run those commands, it doesn't upgrade my install to Magento 2.1 RC 1.

Any clue ?


I ended up using the newly created tag 2.1.0-rc1

So to upgrade from 2.0.6 to 2.1.0 RC1 when you installed via the GitHub repo you need to do the following:

git checkout 2.1.0-rc1
composer update
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
  • Raphael, do you know how to do this via composer? I mean if i need to update version of my magento store and all the vendors I'm getting via cimposer and git contains only my /app/code. – white-imp May 30 '16 at 11:47
  • @white-imp hard to tell without knowing the details of your install, I suggest you ask a new question ;) – Raphael at Digital Pianism May 30 '16 at 12:06
