Note: The information on this page applies only to packages installed from the Unity Registry, a scoped registry, or from a local source. To update packages installed from a Git URL, you can either re-install it as a Git dependency using a new revision or re-install it from the Unity Registry. For more information about how to specify revisions with Git dependenciesThe Package Manager retrieves Git dependencies from a Git repository directly rather than from a package registry. Git dependencies use a Git URL reference instead of a version, and there’s no guarantee about the package quality, stability, validity, or even whether the version stated in its package.json file respects Semantic Versioning rules with regards to officially published releases of this package.
