composer require magento/product-community-edition 2.3.0 --no-update;
composer update;
rm -rf var/di var/generation;
php bin/magento cache:flush;
php bin/magento setup:upgrade;
php bin/magento setup:di:compile;
php bin/magento indexer:reindex;

After upgrade, check your Magento version with the following command:

php bin/magento --version

  • @chethan is it possible to upgrade from 2.1.13 to directly 2.3.0?? Because M 2.1.13 is not supported PHP 7.1.x and M 2.3.0 is not supported below 7.1.3. Commented Sep 9, 2019 at 6:16
  • @chirag you have to upgrade magento version 2.1.14 first than try to upgrade to 3.3.x . Commented Dec 4, 2019 at 6:09

As per your screenshot Magento 2.3 is not support php7.0.31. You can also check system requirement see following link.

Upgrade using the command line Magento 2.3,


You must have PHP 7.2 installed for Magento 2.3 (PHP 7.1.3+ is also supported)

First Take all the process in staging server before going to live, so you can assure the status of the latest version is working fine in your staging server.

pdepend/pdepend:2.5.2 sebastian/phpcpd:~3.0.0
squizlabs/php_codesniffer:3.2.2 –no-update

3. Update autoload from composer.json

Open composer.json and edit the “autoload“: “psr-4” section to add new dependency after “Magento\”: “app/code/Magento/” line.

“Zend\Mvc\Controller\”: “setup/src/Zend/Mvc/Controller/”

Your new composer.json look like below now, "autoload": { "psr-4": { "Magento\Framework\": "lib/internal/Magento/Framework/", "Magento\Setup\": "setup/src/Magento/Setup/", "Magento\": "app/code/Magento/", "Zend\Mvc\Controller\": "setup/src/Zend/Mvc/Controller/" }, .... }
