I would like to update my extension (I updated magento 2.2.6 to 2.3.1 from composer but looks like the extension also need to be updated because it's not working and it should be compatible).
Then i try :

composer.phar update Firebear_ImportExport

also tried :

composer.phar update Firebear/ImportExport

both returned

Package "firebear_importexport" listed for update is not installed. Ignoring.

also tried :

composer.phar require Firebear/ImportExport

returned :

Could not find package Firebear/ImportExport.

Then I suppose I am not using the correct syntax, which syntax should I use ?

  • Is the extension under the vendor folder or app folder? if the app folder then composer will not be able to update that Sep 3, 2019 at 9:09
  • into app/code/firebear/importexport , then how should I do ?

  • As Dava says, if the extension was installed manually, composer won't update it, to know if you installed it with composer, the extension files should be under vendor/, otherways they will be in app/code/

    You should download the latest version from the vendor website

    You would need to overwrite app/code/firebear/importexport content with the latest module version files and run bin/magento setup:upgrade. alternatively you can delete the module from app/code and run the following "composer require firebear/importexport" in your cli (without quotes) this will place the code in the vendor holder and then run setup upgrade Sep 3, 2019 at 9:40

the package name is firebear/importexport... You can check your composer.json in an editor etc.

Upgrading the extension via composer To upgrade the extension, navigate to your store root folder just as per instructions above and run the following commands:

composer update firebear/importexport


php bin/magento setup:upgrade


php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f


php bin/magento cache:clean
  • I also did that did composer.phar update firebear/importexport report Package "firebear/importexport" listed for update is not installed. Ignoring.

The solution was to do a manual installation, it could also work with composer but anyway update is provided by the extension supplier and not automatic
