In this short post, you'll learn how to clear composer cache in your local filesystem which may prevent your packages from being updated.

The command to achieve this is very straightforward, do run the command below:
composer clearcache

For an alias (have dashed)
composer clear-cache

Below is the message that's usually displayed when there's an issue with updating the package.
"The requested package vendor/package could not be found in any version, there may be a typo in the package name"

Now try to re-run the install or update command to update your packages,
composer install && composer update

For an alternative, you can also run the install with the no-cache flag,
composer install --no-cache
