Question

I try update Angular project from version 7.2.5 to 8 of the core framework and CLI by running ng update @angular/cli @angular/core in terminal.

Response from terminal was 'We analyzed your package.json and everything seems to be in order. Good work!'

My version list:

$ ng version

As of today it is alread stable 8.0.0 :)

You might want to try to run ng update --all to update all packages in your package.json file. That might, however, not proceed if it discovers that some inter-dependencies are not met among other packages. In such a case you might want to also add --force option.

Alternatively, you can choose a more tailored approach and hand-pick packages to update (as suggested in answer by Veeraragavan), but you no longer need to add @next version, since all Angular package 8.0.0 versions are stable as of now.
