When you install a package using composer require vendor/package, a entry for example "vendor/package": "^1.4" is added to the composer.json file. It means that Composer can update to patch and minor releases: 1.4.1, 1.5.0 and so on. But not to major version, which means, in this example, 2.0 and higher.

To discover new releases of the packages, you run composer outdated. Some of those updates can be major releases. Running composer update won’t update the version of those.

To update to a new major versions, use this tool.
