How to Update Existing Extensions & Modules in Magento

Login to your Magento administrator dashboard and click on System menu >> Web Setup Wizard (Under Tools section).

This would redirect you to Setup Wizard page where you should click on the Extension manager option.

This will be redirected to Magento Marketplace. You need to register for a account at or login to your existing account in order to retrieve Public and Private Keys.

You will be redirected to a new page where you can observe extensions you have installed and if there are pending updates. If there are updates available, a message with a Review updates button would appear as seen below:

Click on Review Updates button and place ticks in front of the chosen extension(s) and click on the Update button.

Immediately, you'll be redirected to the Readiness Check page. Press the Start Readiness Check button.

Once checking is complete, you can choose the version to which you want to update the component and click on the Update button.

The next step is to choose whether you would like a backup of your application or not. Once you choose what you want to backup, click on the Create Backup button.

In case you do not want a backup, uncheck all and click Next.

This would take you to the last step where you should finalize the process by clicking on the Update button.

A message for successful update appears in the console log and the extension is up-to-date now!
