Yesterday I have experience that I tried to install NuGet Package but an error occurred while retrieving package metadata in Visual Studio 2015.
After getting some try and catch. I found out that the VS2015 is configured to connect the API v3 of the NuGet.org. So I tried to add another one with the URL on API v2 of the NuGet.org and I am then able to install any NuGet package. So I think that if you hit into the same error, this is a good to try.
As many of you might know that VS2015 is already released on 20th July 2015. If you are MSDN Subscriptor, you could download and install it now. For the Team Foundation Server 2015, you might have to wait for a little bit longer.
Watch the keynote on demand below to learn about the latest features and technologies. You can also watch the Visual Studio developer team create an end-to-end solution for an open-source project and see how they tackled problems along the way.
The Visual Studio Express products have been a huge success – hundreds of millions of downloads – MSDN team has brought the Express SKUs together into one product that can do everything from desktop development to Store development to Azure and ASP.NET development. Plus, it includes full extensibility, so you can use all your favorite extensions from the VS Gallery and elsewhere. Built off of the Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 release, VS Community enables you to develop everything from Windows Forms and WPF and MFC to Windows Phone and Store to Azure and ASP.NET – it’s basically a superset of the existing VS Express products. More than that, it includes support for the ecosystem of over 5,000 Visual Studio extensions. Read the Visual Studio Community 2013 release notes and watch the Visual Studio Community 2013 video to learn all about what you can do with this release. Visual Studio Community 2013 is meant for use by open source developers, startups, students, and hobbyists, rather than enterprises. To try it out you could use an Azure VM image.
