"santigarcor/laratrust": "5.2.*"
  1. Run composer update to update the source code.

  2. Run php artisan config:clear and php artisan cache:clear.

  3. Update your config/laratrust.php in the cache ttl from 60 to 3600 or the value you had but now put it in seconds.

  4. Run composer dump-autoload.

Now you can use the 5.2 version without any problem.
