I just installed drush using "composer require drush/drush". It ran correctly and when it completes a navigate to vendor/drush/drush/ directory where the drush.php file is located

Then I run the following command: php drush.php status and I get the following error:

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined method Consolidation\AnnotatedCommand\Hooks\HookManager::getHookOptions() in 
[...]/work/www/EnviePractice/vendor/drush/drush/includes/annotationcommand_adapter.inc on line 475

Error: Call to undefined method Consolidation\AnnotatedCommand\Hooks\HookManager::getHookOptions() in
[...]/work/www/EnviePractice/vendor/drush/drush/includes/annotationcommand_adapter.inc, line 475

Can anyone please guide me to what might be causing this?

Additional details:

  1. I am on ubuntu 16.04
  2. Drupal 8 installation
  3. version of drush 8.1
  • Could be a permissions issue, could you try to soften the permissions on the vendor/drush folder?

  • Did you run "composer global update" after install, then "drush init" ? Apr 18, 2017 at 19:48
  • I assume that [...]/work/www/EnviePractice/vendor/consolidation/annotated-command/ exists?

  • If you installed Drupal 8.3 you must use drush 8.1.10 as specified in the release note. drupal.org/project/drupal/releases/8.3.0

I think your installation or class registry might be broken. Try doing the following things:

  • See if drush rebuild works (if it does not, go to the next point).
  • Go to your Drupal install directory and try to run composer install.
  • If drush rebuild didn't work in the first step, try running it again now.
