I have the latest version of Flutter and I'm trying to run the official Flutter gallery app. When I do dart --version I get

Dart VM version: 2.2.0 (Tue Feb 26 15:04:32 2019 +0100) on "macos_x64"

However, when I try to get the packages:

[flutter_gallery] flutter packages get
Running "flutter packages get" in flutter_gallery...            
The current Dart SDK version is 2.1.2-dev.0.0.flutter-0a7dcf17eb.

Because flutter_gallery requires SDK version >=2.2.0 <3.0.0, version solving failed.
pub get failed (1)
exit code 1

What's interesting is when I run flutter upgrade it lists an older version of Dart (Tools).

Flutter 1.2.1 • channel stable • https://github.com/flutter/flutter.git
Framework • revision 8661d8aecd (5 weeks ago) • 2019-02-14 19:19:53 -0800
Engine • revision 3757390fa4
Tools • Dart 2.1.2 (build 2.1.2-dev.0.0 0a7dcf17eb)

If I understand this error correctly, Flutter is not using the latest version of Dart yet the official Flutter example app requires it. How do I fix this?

Solution 1: Günter Zöchbauer

The output of dart --version is completely irrelevant for Flutter. What you need to check is flutter doctor -v or flutter --version. In your case it shows Tools • Dart 2.1.2 (build 2.1.2-dev.0.0 0a7dcf17eb)

You probably need to switch to another channel until the next stable channel update

flutter channel dev


flutter channel master

Flutter has its own dart-sdk in flutter/bin/cache/. So when you do dart --version , its probably another dart sdk in your system.

For anyone else stuck (The other channels were broken), what I found was switching to stable then switching versions within stable fixed it for me. You can do this by doing the following:

flutter versions

flutter versions 1.5.5 (Or some other version)
