Magento uses multiple "external" dependencies|libraries for example one of them is dotmailer-magento2-extension. This specific module is at version 3.1.1 as it can be seen here vendor/dotmailer/dotmailer-magento2-extension/composer.json

Is there any way to upgrade such a dependency module|library to a newer version? For example to update dotmailer module to 3.1.2.

I'm not looking to update the dotmailer module in particular but for a general way to update magento dependencies like libraries or modules.

  • @DominicXigen did. It does not really achieve what I need. Using the replace node will remove the module completely. Requiring a higher version of the same module will result in having two versions of the same module and clash of namespaces will result. – vitoriodachef May 31 at 5:47
  • @DominicXigen You should've pinged me with the edit. Will try it out. Thanks for your time. – vitoriodachef Jun 3 at 17:14
  • @vitoriodachef please take a look at my comment, it should help. – simon-letch Aug 1 at 9:57

composer update from web root will mass update extensions and components based on version parameters in composer.json.

Or you can require a particular version of something if you want more control over what updates

composer require magento-modules/m2-banner-manager:1.0.5

If you update something that is dependent on something else being newer or whatever composer will sort for you.

Likewise if there is a restriction such as php version supported by component or library composer will throw error.

Although there is a lesser known trick for removing bloatware that comes with vanilla M2 install.

require": {
    [...]
},
"replace": {
    "temando/module-shipping-m2": "*",
    "dotmailer/dotmailer-magento2-extension": "*",
    "shopialfb/facebook-module": "*",
    "klarna/module-kp": "*",
    "klarna/module-ordermanagement": "*",
    "klarna/module-core": "*",
    "amzn/amazon-pay-sdk-php": "*",

},
"config": {
    [...]

Then run composer install or composer update depending on whether you want other stuff to update.

Update

You stated that updating an individual component resulted in 2 being in vendor.

This isn't right.

As a test I decided to update colinmollenhour/cache-backend-file to version 1.4.5. Not in initial composer.json file but brought in elsewhere. As you can see composer correctly performed the upgrade.

For this case, the composer.json only requires "magento/product-community-edition": "2.3.3"

The composer.lock file contains "magento/product-community-edition" with a dependency on dotmailer-magento2-extension at a fixed version. So, unless there's a new version of magento community, no upgrade will happen.

Also, the package source for dotmailer-magento2-extension will be from magento's internal repository, rather than github/packagist where the latest versions reside.

So in answer to your question, to upgrade dotmailer-magento2-extension you will need to run:

composer require dotmailer/dotmailer-magento2-extension:"X as Y"

Where X is the current version of the extension and Y is the version you want.
