            HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
            HttpResponseMessage responseMessage = await client.GetAsync("");
            if (responseMessage.IsSuccessStatusCode)
                var jstring = await responseMessage.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
                list = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<List<TempData>>(jstring);

                //dataTable = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<DataTable>(jstring);
                return list;
            return list;

Just change the return type to List as follows:
public static async Task<list<tempdata>> GetTempData()
