Cannot reach authentication server at https://pkg.juliacomputing.com/auth or authentication failed.
Please check your internet connection and firewall settings.

Alternatively, open

I had the same problem after installing latest JuliaPro v 1.5.0.
Possible solution:

  • Open https://pkg.juliahub.com/auth in your browser, it will let you download file token.toml.
  • Rename this file as auth.toml
  • Copy it to C:\Users\Administrator.juliapro\JuliaPro_v1.4.2-1\servers\pkg.juliacomputing.com… if this folder does not exist, just manually create it
  • try it again
