Hopefully this is an easy one for one of you. I had posted this on stack overflow, without much success. Cheers

I am on Nuget 2.5.4. The 'Manage packages for entire solution' feature to install Updates is intermittently showing 'false positives'.

By false positive, I mean an indication that something in the solution needs an update, BUT every project in the solution is already at the latest update. At least I think that is what is going on.

For example (see below), nuget is offering to help install NUnit but every package is grayed out. The test projects should be grayed out since they are already at the latest release.

Packages without NUnit are also grayed out though, and I would think they should not be, so the solution manager can install them. So not sure if my false positive theory is correct, but something is out of sync.

What is the fix?

If you check the packages under the 'packages' folder, what do you see?

not exactly sure what you mean. I'm guessing you know that nothing in the tree view of projects the update packages is 'checkable'

The .nuget folder for the solution looks like below, and likely 'wrong' (the dates are old compared to the last Nuget release). Also the package config looks corrupted

Was there something else you had meant when you say check the packages under the 'packages' folder? Sorry to be slow on the uptake if so.

Thanks for the reply!
