on the updates page /admin/reports/updates under Modules there is a module called standard 8.6.12 as and it is highlighted with a warning No available releases found (Warning)

this module does not appear when running $ composer outdated

is there any idea where this module is coming from, if it is in fact needing an update, or if this is just a typo in one of the site's config files somewhere?

this is what I see: enter image description here

I have recently updated to Drupal 8.6.12 (using $ composer update)

    Is it referring to the profile?

  • thx @Kevin I hadn't considered that - that would align with the web\core\profiles\standard profile - and looking at the standard.info.yml there are some modules and themes that I have removed as part of my install. For ex) I uninstalled the 'bartik' theme and modules like 'history' and 'tour'

  • it increments every time that I update Drupal core - so now it is at standard 8.6.13. how is this related to core and why is it appearing as a module?

  • You removed the standard profile? Like in deleted it? It belongs to Drupal core. Don't touch anything in core.

going to mark this as answered so I can close it...

I removed a contrib module that we are no longer using and the mystery module "standard 8.6.12" no longer appears.

I cannot say for certain which module it was - but I am 99.78% certain it was from a contrib module, not from a core one.
