Please see bug here for details

As part of the fix it's  planned to revert back change that was done with this issue

<ResolveReferencesDependsOn Condition="$(RestorePackages) == 'true'"> RestorePackages; 


would be replaced with

<BuildDependsOn Condition="$( RestorePackages) == 'true'">

in nuget.targets file

This would make package restore to happen when project is build instead of when assembly references are resolved which causes the issue.

Please update here if you have any concerns.

Fix has been deployed to version 2.2.1
Currently trying out the new package with the repro in the bug and then will publish it to production. By reverting back this change restore package would kick off when you build the project.
