We realized that our Drupal core version is outdated by two versions. We are currently running 8.5.3, but 8.5.5 has been released. Rather than updating directly two versions, we wanted to upgrade from 8.5.3 to 8.5.4 and then eventually from 8.5.4 to 8.5.5.

We tried the following but it didn't get updated.

composer update drupal/core:8.5.4 --with-dependencies

Message after running composer command

Nothing to install or update

I ran this command in the directory outside of docroot in C:\users\name\Sites\mysite\ which has the following folders

  1. .git
  2. config
  3. docroot
  4. drush
  5. hooks
  6. vendor

I also ran composer why-not drupal/core:8.5.4 and had the following message returned.

There is no installed package depending on "drupal/core" in versions not matching 8.5.4

After running composer why-not drupal/core:8.5.4 and doing some more research on the error message, I came across Upgrading from 8.5.0 to 8.5.1 using composer

This command did the trick for me.

composer require drupal/core:8.5.4  webflo/drupal-core-require-dev --update-with-dependencies

Look at your composer.json... do you see drupal/core listed under "require" or "replace"? Make sure you move it under "require"

Yes, I saw this exact same thing the other day on a project so can confirm.

@bleen "drupal/core": "^8.4" is under require, but still having the issue.
