Setting up packages in REPL session

I am following along with the VSCode JuliaCon session and trying to add PkgTemplates in the package manager, but the path is set to /home/pfitzseb/.julia/dev/JuliaCon, and says it can’t find that PkgTemplates package. Seems it’s not looking at the default area. Any help much appreciated! This is using the inbuilt terminal for Julia from the Julia extension for VSCode. 2:23:39 Package development in VSCode | Workshop | JuliaCon 2021 - YouTube
