I am using Julia 1.5.3 under Windows 10, and cannot add any packages. The problem is not a misspelt package name. I have been able to add packages with all previous versions. I notice that, when attempting to add packages, my screen flickers for the briefest instant, and suddenly, I am thrown into Powershell. After that, I get the message
"ERROR: The following package names could not be resolved:
- Makie (not found in project, manifest or registry)"
. Others have reported this behavior. The solutions suggested in those cases are beyond my ken or desire to implement. I can progress further within Juliapro, but then encounter other problems. The firewall at my company precludes me from circumventing that problem.
I can, of course, revert to a previous version of Julia. However, my preference is not to do that. Do I simply forego using this version of Julia, use R, and hope the problem is solved in the next version?
