Hello,

I am experiencing errors when trying to use the Powershell Gallery. Running

find-module

prompts me to install the NuGet provider. I end up with following errors:

PackageManagement\Get-PackageProvider : Unable to find package provider 'NuGet'. It may not be imported yet. Try
'Get-PackageProvider -ListAvailable'.

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : RegisterPackageSourceRequired,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.InstallPack

When I run

get-psrepository

I get the following error:

PackageManagement\Get-PackageSource : Unable to find module providers (PowerShellGet).
At C:\Program Files (x86)\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerShellGet\1.0.0.1\PSModule.psm1:3544 char:31

   ], Exception
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnknownProviders,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.GetPackageSource

Is there a proper way to manually reinstall NuGet and/or PowerShellGet modules? The $psversiontable shows:

PSVersion 5.0.10586.122
PSCompatibleVersions {1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0...}
BuildVersion 10.0.10586.122
CLRVersion 4.0.30319.42000
WSManStackVersion 3.0
PSRemotingProtocolVersion 2.3
SerializationVersion 1.1.0.1

Thanks!

PowerShellGet should be on your system already, installed with PSv5 along with PackageManagement.

Nuget gets bootstrapped from the internet. You can run this command to force it:

Get-PackageProvider Nuget -ForceBootstrap

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the reply. When I try the above cmdlet you gave me, I receive the following error:

get-packageprovider : Unable to find package provider 'Nuget'. It may not be imported yet. Try 'Get-PackageProvider
-ListAvailable'.
At line:1 char:1
+ get-packageprovider Nuget -ForceBootstrap
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Microsoft.Power...PackageProvider:GetPackageProvider) [Get-PackageProvi
   der], Exception
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnknownProviderFromActivatedList,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.GetPacka
   geProvider

No results are returned by running

get-packageprovider -listavailable

Could I possibly be having issues with modules in the different profile locations? I have the following modules available:

That does seem to be a lot of versions of both PackageManagement and OneGet. Not sure what to make of it.
