This article provides a hotfix for the issue when merchants on version 2.4.4 run the composer update command, and then the packages (modules) listed below are getting downgraded to their earlier versions which are not compatible with version 2.4.4 and are only supposed to be used with version 2.4.5 and above.

Affected products and versions

Expected results:

The upgrade from version 2.4.4 to 2.4.4-p1 results in the correct packages (modules) for version 2.4.4-p1.

Workaround 1: Patch

The patch is attached to this article. To download it, scroll down to the end of the article and click the file name or click the following link: Download

Compatible Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source versions:

The patch was created for:

  • Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure 2.4.4
  • Adobe Commerce on-premises 2.4.4
  • Magento Open Source 2.4.4
The patch is not compatible with any other Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source versions and editions.

How to Apply the Patch

Use the attached bash script as the workaround for this issue.

Exact instructions how to use the script:

On Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure:

  1. Download the bash script file to your local checkout of your cloud codebase.
  2. Run the bash script file to modify the composer files locally.
  3. Add and commit the modified composer files to your git repository.

On Adobe Commerce or Magento Open Source on-premises:

  1. Place the bash script in the root folder of your Adobe Commerce/Magento Open Source 2.4.4 installation (the same folder as the composer.json).

  2. Run the bash script with an apply argument to lock affected packages (modules) to their 2.4.4 versions:

    code language-bash
    sh apply
  3. Run composer updated to install the locked packages (modules).

  4. Once you are ready to upgrade to 2.4.5 or 2.4.4-p1, run the script with a rollback argument:

    code language-bash
    sh rollback

    Skipping this step will result in upgrade errors due to conflicting packages (modules) requirements.

  5. After completion of the above steps, you can begin upgrading.

Workaround 2

The 2nd workaround for this issue is not to run the composer update command without any arguments.
