  • Try composer clear-cache and try again. If this doesn't help, uninstall composer and reinstall it. Commented Apr 20, 2022 at 6:10

Update Project or global composer.json file under config section :

    "config": {

        "platform-check": false

After that Run commands :

composer update
composer dump

After that Run the magento commands for setup upgrade, compile and deploy commands.

Hopefully It will resolve.
