Common Errors

You can’t view the Web Setup Wizard?

The Web Setup Wizard was deprecated in Magento 2.3.6 and is removed in Magento 2.3.7. After it is removed, you must use the command line to install or upgrade Magento, as well as modules and extensions.

Please check the Magento version if it is there. If not, use the CLI method to install the modules and extension.

Purchased Extensions won’t appear in Web Setup Wizard

This is another issue going on with latest Magento versions. The Web Setup Wizard APIs are not working as expected. Hence, the purchased extensions do not appear in the Installation section of Web Setup Wizard. 

You have to use CLI to install the extension in this case.
