So here I was trying to create symfony 5 project but somehow as things weren’t working as per documentation. I ran command ‘symfony check:requirements’ to see if my system fulfills all requirements for latest version of symfony, but this is what i received:
$symfony check:requirements [InvalidArgumentException] There are no commands defined in the "check" namespace.
I was on version 1.5.11 of symfony binary, which apparently was the latest but when i ran help command here’s what i got:
symfony Symfony Installer (1.5.11) ========================== This is the official installer to start new projects based on the Symfony full-stack framework. To create a new project called blog in the current directory using the latest stable version of Symfony, execute the following command: symfony new blog Create a project based on the Symfony Long Term Support version (LTS): symfony new blog lts Create a project based on a specific Symfony branch: symfony new blog 2.8 or symfony new blog 3.0 Create a project based on a specific Symfony version: symfony new blog 2.8.1 or symfony new blog 3.0.1 Create a demo application to learn how a Symfony application works: symfony demo Updating the Symfony Installer ------------------------------ New versions of the Symfony Installer are released regularly. To update your installer version, execute the following command: symfony self-update
So I see this installer doesn’t support Symfony 5. Also becuase symfony self-update didn’t work and simply said:
$ symfony self-update // Symfony Installer is already updated to the latest version (1.5.11).
Well It seems I was out of options, So I thought why not try to reinstall symfony installer, so I installed latest installer from symfony.

Making the binary executable... Installing the binary into your home directory... The binary was saved to: /home/mayank/.symfony/bin/symfony The Symfony CLI v4.13.3 was installed successfully! Add this to your shell configuration file: export PATH="$HOME/.symfony/bin:$PATH" Start a new shell, and then run 'symfony' Or install it globally on your system: mv /home/mayank/.symfony/bin/symfony /usr/local/bin/symfony and then run 'symfony' mv /home/mayank/.symfony/bin/symfony /usr/local/bin/symfony mv: replace '/usr/local/bin/symfony', overriding mode 0755 (rwxr-xr-x)?
So the final step was to replace original symfony with the new one in bin directory which now makes it available for me.
