Unable to resolve package source https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2

Find-Module will result in a meaningless warning if you search for a known module in the Powershell gallery.


Find-Module -Name PSWriteHTML
WARNING: Unable to resolve package source 'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2'.

and the following Error is from a TLS issue:

PackageManagement\Find-Package : No match was found for the specified search criteria and module name 'PSWriteHTML'. 
Try Get-PSRepository to see all available registered module repositories.
At C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerShellGet\2.2\PSModule.psm1:8871 char:9

Thats a good question, I didn’t find something about this.


Use NuGet provider to install the required module to the target location.

Register-PackageSource -Name PSNuGet -Location https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2 -ProviderName NuGet
