Sometimes while running your Protractor test you get the error ‘Could not find update-config.json’ and in most of the cases when updating webdriver manager you get this error.

Answer:

  1. Open Command prompt or terminal.
  2. Go to your project root directory.
  3. Enter the below command and hit Enter key.
node node_modules/protractor/bin/webdriver-manager update

This command will update the WebDriver Manager.

Run your test again.

You are Done!!!
