you should have run that command to remove the extension :

composer remove company/module-pacakge

While you install module using composer there are 2 files where entries are added :

1 - composer.json

2 - composer.lock

if you have deleted the module manually then, you should delete entries in both files of that module and then run composer update

  • i used composer remove company/module-pacakge, but i am getting like this Dependency "composer/composer" is also a root requirement, but is not explicitly whitelisted. Ignoring. Oct 4, 2018 at 10:43
  • like what ? did you tried with other option remove entries from files ? Oct 4, 2018 at 10:44

Running the following command will remove the package from vendor (or wherever you install packages), composer.json and composer.lock. Change vendor/package appropriately.

composer remove vendor/package

Obviously, you'll need to remove references to that package before composer update

when you install any package/module using composer, at that time composer will add the reference into composer.json you can check there your module name. so if you want to remove that module from composer.json, you have to run composer remove vendor/package
