I have been away for the last couple of months dealing with family stuff, and now I have come back feeling like I can't remember how to do anything work-related, HA! Anyway, I am trying to update our Sanity from 3.19.3 to 3.26.0 and I can not, for the life of me, remember what the command is to update it, and I can't find it anywhere. Doing
npm update sanity
does not update to 3.26.0. I feel so silly and like the answer is obvious and right in front of me, but my brain just can't see it. 🤦‍♀️ Can someone please put me out of my misery here?!

You may have
locked into your package.json. changing it to
will allow the update
Jan 24, 2024, 6:43 PM
nope, it's
"sanity": "^3.19.3"
😞 I have been updating sanity studio for the last two years with a simple command (that used to be noted under the version number when you needed to update), and I can't believe I have completely wiped it from my memory.

Have you tried removing your node_modules and lock file?
Jan 24, 2024, 8:05 PM
I will give that a shot. Is the command just
npm update sanity
Jan 24, 2024, 8:05 PM
You can run npm outdated to see if its outdated as well.

No luck.
When I do
npm outdated
, this is what I get.

And my dependencies in my package.json look like this:

npm view sanity version

If you deleted your modules folder and lock file you’d run
npm i
to get everything loaded up again.

when i ran npm view sanity version it said 3.26.0 .... whaaaat

Jan 24, 2024, 8:58 PM
but... my package.json still says 3.19, and when I spin up the dev server it says it's 3.19
Jan 24, 2024, 8:59 PM
You may need to delete your lock file and
and then run
npm i

I deleted the node_modules and did npm install after that, but I didn't delete the lock file. So I will do it again and delete the lock file this time

Your pgk.json saying
means load up the most current version up to
Jan 24, 2024, 9:01 PM
oh I got ya
Jan 24, 2024, 9:01 PM
So it’ll load 3.26 but it won’t say so in the pkg.
Jan 24, 2024, 9:01 PM
ok, I spun up the dev server and it says it is 3.26. Thank you for your help on that. I feel like I have to relearn everything, ha!
But I did see something odd that I want to ask you about while you're still here... why is it saying the latest version is 3.21.1?
Jan 24, 2024, 9:05 PM
when, in prod it looks like this (I haven't pushed my changes to prod yet)
Jan 24, 2024, 9:06 PM
Very good question. My best guess is caching .
Jan 24, 2024, 9:07 PM
ok, I won't worry about it then. :simple_smile:
