Manually Upgrading Nuget In Visual Studio

Attempting to install a nuget package the other day I got the following error :

Package ‘xyz’ uses features that are not supported by the current version of NuGet. To upgrade NuGet, see http://docs.nuget.org/consume/installing-nuget.

Following the link takes you to this page. Because I am using the inbuild package manager console from Visual Studio, I followed the steps inside VS that say to go Tools > Extensions and Updates and then click the Updates tab to see if I had an update waiting.

I didn’t. Still stuck. Damn.

After a bit of searching I came across this page that has the Visual Studio extensions to be downloaded manually and installed. After downloading the package and installing manually, with a quick restart of visual studio we are up and running on the latest version of Nuget!

If you are unsure if you are on the latest version of Nuget, you can type “nuget help” in your package manager console and it will tell you the version.
