Potential causes:
 - A typo in the package name
 - The package is not available in a stable-enough version according to your minimum-stability setting
   see <https://getcomposer.org/doc/04-schema.md#minimum-stability> for more details.
 - It's a private package and you forgot to add a custom repository to find it

Read <https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md> for further common problems.

Installation failed, reverting ./composer.json to its original content.

Thank you very much for replying this @Bizley !
Well, I’m not so sure as this website was maintained by a partner which he’s dead now, and I’m not really familiar with Yii but it’s running really fast even faster than Laravel, I can see that. So decided to keep it running on. but you know 2.0.18 is a little bit old now. If you would like to help that I can provide you the server access info and really appreciate for this for you, Thanks again!

Could you share your composer.json?

Sure, of course I can:

I have a couple of solutions for you, just recommend testing well in a controlled environment, before going to production:

Try this first at project folder:

composer global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:^1.2.0"
composer update

If still getting the error, try cleaning your composer:

rm -rf ~/.composer/vendor
rm ~/.composer/composer.lock
cd ~/.composer
composer clear-cache
composer self-update
composer global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:^1.2.0"
composer install
composer update

This solution is a modified version from a response to a Stack Overflow question.

Another solution could adding the yidas package, as provided by packagist, just add this to your composer.json require:

"yidas/yii2-bower-asset":"*",

One thing that I noted is that you are using lots of “dev” packages, which requires you to set "minimum-stability": "dev",.

If possible, try using the latest stable version of those packages, so that you can set your minimum-stability to stable.

No, no, please don’t use fxp/composer-asset-plugin. Add this in your composer.json:

"repositories": [
    {
      "type": "composer",
      "url": "https://asset-packagist.org"
    }
  ]

Thank you so much for replying this Bruno, It works with "yidas/yii2-bower-asset":"*", and what about “minimum-stability”: “dev”? Just need to change “dev” to “stable” ? or something will make that switch to stable version, although not sure why my partner set it with dev one but all good now and all I want is to use it with stable version in my production website. And also really appreciate it You @Bizley for your reply with https://asset-packagist.org repo, will look into it more for asset-packagist.org, Thanks a million you guys are awesome!!! Nope! You are not just guys, but the Pros! Thank YOU!

@Bizley is correct abou the package, sorry about my mistake. Just make sure you use the assets-packagist.

For the minimum-stability, you will have to update this option to “stable” and update the packages that depends on “dev” versions, like "kartik-v/yii2-widget-datetimepicker", to their stable versions.

The other guy might be using them because by the time they might’ve had some featured in development that he wanted. Just make sure that this updates don’t break your app before releasing to production.
