Issue Details

I am installing software through NI Package Manager and I get the following error:

 

"The feed name '<feed name>' is already in use. Choose a different name for the feed."
 

Solution

To fix the installation error:
  1. Click on the settings icon on the top-right corner of NI Package Manager.
  2. Make sure Show available packages and feed management tools is checked.
  3. Click on the FEEDS tab within the settings.
  4. Highlight the feed name that showed up in the Error dialog.
  5. Click Remove to remove the feed.
  6. Restart NI Package Manager. You should now be able to install your package. 

Additional Information

PACKAGES tab lists all the packages that are available to install from all the registered feeds. This tab does not show packages that are already installed.
