As I am new to SharePoint Framework, I am trying to update an existing web-part (updated the version in package-solution.json).

Updated .sppkg file in app catalog (overwrite), shows new version number. Go to collection where the existing web-part was working, update to new version and nothing works.

The web-part isn't showing up anymore.

Please suggest any workaround.

This is my package-solution.json:

  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/spfx-build/package-solution.schema.json",
  "solution": {
    "name": "tms-client-side-solution",
    "id": "6c0b762c-5c8c-4bf5-9094-f3c39f865b8d",
    "version": "",
    "includeClientSideAssets": true,
    "isDomainIsolated": false,
    "developer": {
      "name": "",
      "websiteUrl": "",
      "privacyUrl": "",
      "termsOfUseUrl": "",
      "mpnId": ""
  "paths": {
    "zippedPackage": "solution/tms.sppkg"
  • Have you deployed the updated version via the app catalog? Aug 22, 2020 at 14:44
  • No ...I have updated the version directly through package-solution.json file Aug 22, 2020 at 16:16
  • I have added an answer for your question which will hopefully allow you to update your app. Aug 23, 2020 at 19:58

Update-PnPApp updates an installed app if a new version is available in the tenant or site collection app catalog.

  • This solution gives following error: Error: {"error":{"code":"-1, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ResourceNotFoundException","message":{"lang":"en-US","value":"Cannot find resource for the request SP.RequestContext.current/web/sitecollectionappcatalog/."}}} Aug 24, 2020 at 7:28
  • Have you specified the correct ID? Also, is your solution in a tenant or site collection app catalog? Aug 24, 2020 at 8:45
  • Yes I have specified correct ID...solution is in site collection app catalog..Please suggest other workaround.. Aug 24, 2020 at 8:51
  • You may need to deploy the solution to your site again if it isn't showing up at all. The PowerShell works if the solution is already deployed and a new version is added to the app catalog. Aug 24, 2020 at 11:04
  • PowerShell is also not working...I have added the new version of app to the app catalog...Same appI am able to add in my site collection but it is not getting shown up at the time of adding webpart to the site pages.. Aug 24, 2020 at 11:09
