If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
For developing at my desk, the warning message is only issued when compiling the DLL, obviously. Our automated build process builds all parts of the product from source which causes the warnings to be in the build log. Both results are sufficient to help me keep track of items for later changes.
The exceptions to both of these cases are third-party libraries supplied without source code. We use several of those to control hardware we buy off-the-shelf.
What do you guys think for these containers? After using them for a while with VS, I think this technology is a rubbish. Too many moving parts. Versioning nightmare. URLs changing, living you high and dry, conflicts between solution and projects etc.
Is it just me who is not fully appreciate/understand this library management mechanic?

For a long time I tried to stop the use of NuGet packages, but after a bunch of new colleagues arrived they had their way and now the builder is totally dependent on NuGet and the internet.
And of course they were totally surprised that suddenly version conflicts arose.
But on the positive side: I must admit that last year I tried to get the new NpgSql driver for PostgreSQL working and could not get it done without using NuGet.
I even have plans to create a privat NuGet server, see: private-nuget-servers[^]
So as the saying goes: "Go with the flow" ...
I've had a few run-ins with NuGet during my career, but apart from one time, nothing I couldn't fix.
What really bothers me is that it tells me to update to package v5.0.0, which I know to be built on .NET 5.0, while my project is .NET Core 3.1.
That's not compatible, yet it wants me to update...
It shouldn't be that difficult to recognize my .NET version and then only show me updates for that particular version, or so you'd think.
Everyone who's read is is now doomed to a hell of unsolvable problems for all eternity.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

How are you using NuGet? All I do is right-click my project in Visual Studio, Manage NuGet Packages and then install what I need. It's much easier than going out to find the vendor's website, downloading an sdk, and adding references in Visual Studio.
And mine don't ever try to update so new versions or url changes don't affect me. I've been using it for the last couple of years and have not had the problems you mentioned so you must be doing something wrong.
