On Drupal 9, I want to install the Taxonomy menu module using Composer, but I get the following error.

Using version ^3.4 for drupal/taxonomy_menu
./composer.json has been updated
Loading composer repositories with package information
Updating dependencies (including require-dev)
Package operations: 1 install, 0 updates, 0 removals

  • Installing drupal/taxonomy_menu (dev-3.x e89d1e8): Authentication required (git.drupalcode.org): Username:

The command is waiting for a Git username/password, but two days ago the installation ran smoothly.

How can I ask for a stable version of the module?
On the project's page they write that, as of 21 May 2019, Taxonomy menu 8.x-3.x-dev is already fully compatible with Drupal 9.

This must be why composer require initially proposed 3.4 version and ultimately tried to install the dev-3.x version.

How can I ask for a stable version of the module?

You can't install a stable version of Taxonomy Menu module for Drupal 9 at the moment because no such version exists.

If you look at the project page, you see the latest version is 3.4 which is marked Requires Drupal: 8.x.


So, if you want to use a stable version, you have to stay with Drupal 8 for now.

To use the dev version on Drupal 9, you can do this in composer.json:

    "drupal/taxonomy_menu": "3.x-dev",

Normally you should not need to authenticate to git. It's probably a proxy issue; you might find some hints in this discussion.


In a similar situation inside a lando (docker local developement environment) I was able to overcome this problem by getting a new personal_access_tokens from https://gitlab.com/-/profile/personal_access_tokens

and running

lando composer config -g gitlab-oauth.gitlab.com glpat-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    It's a good answer in general, but it doesn't work for Drupal as git.drupalcode.org doesn't allow you to use personal access tokens.

This issue also happens if the WSL clock is wrong. Run date to check. The WSL clock will become out of sync with Windows if you put your computer to sleep with Modern Standby, which is the default in Windows 11, I think.

There are some workarounds, such as restarting WSL, or running sudo hwclock -s
