Just switched machines, got "ERROR: expected package `IfElse [615f187c]` to be registered"

I just moved my project from one machine running Julia 1.5.1 to another machine running 1.5.2, and tried running ] instantiate. The first time I got an error: ERROR: expected package IfElse [615f187c] to be registered, but then I just ran the exact same command and it worked… What’s up with that? It certainly seems buggy…

There also seem to be loads of others coming across similar things:

(odecontrol) pkg>

I’m assuming that the package IfElse is this one from @ChrisRackauckas in SciML:

Looks like it was added relatively recently. You might be able to avoid this by first updating the registry using ]registry up and then using instantiate.

This looks most related to
