Composer error on jqueryui

Hi all.
Do anyone experienced problems in composer update?
Starting from yesterday, it returns me an error on all of my projects. I didn’t installed any new module or extension, so I cannot understand what is going on.
The error is:

No valid bower.json was found in any branch or tag of ` `` `, could not load a package from it.

I can paste here my composer.json (who isn’t changed at all from my last update), but the first question is:
Are you also experiencing problems with Composer update?

My composer.json is:

Hi @letsjump,

No, composer keeps working fine in my environment today.

From the error message, I guess some of your required packages needs jquery-ui and it is causing the error.

Anyway, why don’t you examine with composer diagnose?

You were right:
I had some warnings because some of my package versions were too strict (“V3.8.0” instead of “^3.8”) and my docker containers that were copied from another project had the global extension fxp/composer-asset-plugin installed.
So I removed it with
composer global remove fxp/composer-asset-plugin
Now everything works as expected.
