Can't install Github forked repository using Composer

I have tried installing a Github forked repository using Composer but I always receive the following message whenever I run composer update on my machine:

Problem 1 - The requested package socialr/dingo-api could not be found in any version, there may be a typo in the package name.

Potential causes: - A typo in the package name - The package is not available in a stable-enough version according to your minimum-stability setting see for more details.

Read for further common problems.

This is my composer.json file:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            "url": ""
    "require": {
        "SOCIALR/dingo-api": "dev-master"
    "config": {
        "preferred-install": "dist"
    "prefer-stable": true,
    "minimum-stability": "dev"

As you can see I have set the minimum-stability to dev and I'm also requiring the repository in the repositories section but I keep receiving the same error.
