      Hello,

      I recently installed PowerShell 7.0.1 using the package installer found in the Git repo (https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell). The install completed fine and with no errors but, I’m getting an error related to NuGet when I try to do things like installing a module. Here’s an example of what I’m referring to:

      PS /Users/cartersheehan> Install-Module -Name AWSLambdaPSCore                                                                                                                                     
      
      NuGet provider is required to continue
      
      PowerShellGet requires NuGet provider version '2.8.5.201' or newer to interact with NuGet-based repositories. The NuGet provider must be available in '' or ''. You can also install the NuGet provider by running 'Install-PackageProvider -Name NuGet -MinimumVersion 
      
      2.8.5.201 -Force'. Do you want PowerShellGet to install and import the NuGet provider now?

      PS /Users/cartersheehan> 
      

      As you can see, doing actions require NuGet but, when prompted to install NuGet or when I try to install it myself, it fails.

      Any help will be greatly appreciated!

      Thank you,

      Carter

      Please don’t post just to “bump” – it typically gets you the reverse of what you want. I’m not sure if the TLS setting is only applicable to windows or not, but you may try this.

      [Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12 
      Install-Module PowerShellGet -RequiredVersion 2.2.4 -SkipPublisherCheck

      Doug,

      My apologies. I tried your suggestion to adjust the tls security setting but I still get the same prompt to install NuGet before the install of PowerShellGet can even happen. During the NuGet install I get the same error messages.

      Carter,

      I’ll see if it’s consistent on my Mac. Have you tried any other version?

      Doug,

      I have not tested any other version right now, I went right for the LTS version available in the Git repo. I’ve swapped over to the Windows side of my Mac (bootcamp), so I’m able to get around this problem for now. I’ve installed the same version on the Windows side of my machine and did not run into the same issue.
