ReflectionException In Container.php Line 741: Class View Does Not Exist

I'm working on a Laravel 5.1 project with Homestead. I shelled into my Vagrant machine and ran the Composer Update command in an attempt to try to update my project and now I get the following error:

    1. in Container.php line 741

I'm not sure what broke. I had already been working in Laravel 5.1 and Composer was running just fine. I feel that I have two basic options: 1) try to revert back tot he previous version of Composer or 2) revert to a previous version of my project. However, is there a simpler fix for this?



Make sure that you have Illuminate\View\ViewServiceProvider listed in the list of providers in your config/app.php file.

Apparently there is no view service in the container and this is the provided that sets it up.
