This question already has an answer here:
I installed (or downloaded) drupal 8 via:
composer create-project drupal/drupal my_site_name 8.0.*
Which, at the time I ran it, downloaded Drupal 8.0.1. Now drupal 8.0.2 is available and I'd like to update to this version.
I'm not sure how to update core but I decided to try running
composer update from my drupal site's root directory.
This updates many packages (e.g.):
$ composer update Loading composer repositories with package information Updating dependencies (including require-dev) - Removing composer/installers (v1.0.21) - Installing composer/installers (v1.0.22) Loading from cache > Drupal\Core\Composer\Composer::vendorTestCodeCleanup - Removing symfony/class-loader (v2.7.6) - Installing symfony/class-loader (v2.7.9) Downloading: 100% > Drupal\Core\Composer\Composer::vendorTestCodeCleanup - Removing symfony/console (v2.7.6) - Installing symfony/console (v2.7.9) Downloading: 100% (...) > Drupal\Core\Composer\Composer::vendorTestCodeCleanup - Removing twig/twig (v1.23.1) - Installing twig/twig (v1.23.3) Downloading: 100%
However I don't see anything about updating
drupal/drupal. And when I visit my site's status report it still shows 8.0.1.
So how do I actually update core via composer?
