Mine had the same issue. I downloaded the 2.3-develop from https://github.com/magento/magento2/tree/2.3-develop and looking at the composer.json file there is now version set in the source code. I opened my composer.json in the main install directory and added the line "version": "2.3-dev", between "type" and "license" lines as that is basically what my 2.2-dev code had.

  • This is still a problem in 2.4-develop. Is there a reason for this or are they just not bothering to fix it? I tried putting in "2.4-develop" but it gave me an error that it was an invalid version string. I then put in "2.4-dev" and it worked.
