I want to install the following package in spacemacs: https://github.com/clojure-emacs/clj-refactor.el, but when I do this: M-x package-install clj-refactor, I don't see a clj-refactor option in Melpa suggestions. Instead I see a discover-clj-refactor package. Why isn't Melpa showing the cli-refactor package? Do I have to update Melpa or something?

    Maybe you have it already installed... Have you checked?

  • Double check that you've updated metadata for latest packages in Melpa. M-x list-packages and wait for it to check for updates.

clj-refactor is included with Spacemacs. package-install only lists packages that aren't already installed. Try package-list-packages to see all packages, installed and uninstalled.
