npm Error No valid versions available when attempting to upgrade NodeBB


  • I tried upgrading my nodebb instance to the latest version and followed the instructions in the nodebb documentation. I got an error with a plugin called "nodebb-plugin-seo-thread" which I don't remember installing tbh and now I can't run nodebb.

    I tried running the command to uninstall the plugin but it results in the same error.

    $ ./nodebb reset -p nodebb-plugin-seo-thread
    Dependencies outdated or not yet installed.
    Installing them now...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    @emotion just remove the folder nodebb-plugin-seo-thread from the node_modules/ folder.

    That error you're seeing is related to the proper dependencies not being installed, so it tried to install them first before doing what you want (which was deactivating the plugin). Hence the error.


  • @julian Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I thought of doing that but there's no folder called nodebb-plugin-seo-thread in node_modules. There's a folder called nodebb-plugin-seo. I just moved it to a different directory and tried the upgrade command again.

    Same thing, still results in an error about nodebb-plugin-seo-thread

    How do I troubleshoot this problem?

    @emotion try npm rm nodebb-plugin-seo-thread

    Thanks, but it's the same error:

    @emotion please share you package.json

    Try removing that plugin from the dependencies section.


  • @pitaj

    The plugin was indeed in the dependencies section even though it was not installed on my nodeBB instance, weird.

    Removing it has fixed the error. Thank you so much for your help 🙂
