On attempt to install some extension using Magento Connect Manager one the following error messages is shown:

Error: community/Facebook_LikeBox: Version for 'Facebook_LikeBox' was not detected

Error: community/Fooman_GoogleAnalyticsPlus: Version for ‘Fooman_GoogleAnalyticsPlus’ was not detected

Error: community/facebooklb: Version for ‘facebooklb’ was not detected

Error: community/ShareThisProduct: No releases for ‘ShareThisProduct’, skipping

Error: community/VK_FacebookFacepile: No releases for ‘VK_FacebookFacepile’, skipping



The latest extension version is not available for the current distribution state.

By default, we set Stable distribution state for installations.



The latest extension version most probably is available as Beta, so to install it via MagentoConnect it is needed to switch to Settings tab in the Magento Connect Manager and switch preferred state option to Beta:


If you wish to install "stable" version of the extension you can switch to "Releases" tab at the Extension page on MagentoConnect site and obtain the extension key for specific stable version.
