Unable to download anything from nuget, even though the nuget source is accessible in the browser

While search is working just fine, I'm unable to actually download any packages off of nuget. I've tried changing the nuget source and seen the same results.

As a sample package, I tried to install Glimpse:
PM> Install-Package Glimpse
The source at NuGet Source [http://packages.nuget.org/v1/FeedService.svc] is unreachable. Falling back to NuGet Local Cache at C:\Users\cwhiten\AppData\Local\NuGet\Cache
Install-Package : Unable to find package 'Glimpse'.
At line:1 char:16
+ Install-Package <<<<  Glimpse
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Install-Package], InvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NuGetCmdletUnhandledException,NuGet.PowerShell.Commands.InstallPackageCommand
I can access http://packages.nuget.org/v1/FeedService.svc in my browser without issue. How can I debug and solve this issue?

Same deal here. If I uninstall and reinstall NuGet, it works for one single package, then stops working. Using Fiddler I confirm that no request is even being made after the first one. The nuget source is reachable from everything except Nuget itself.

I can work around this by deleting my NuGet.config. This works once, then NuGet makes a new config file for me.

EDIT: this doesn't work reliably.

Hi Guys,

I had a similar issue with other packages and what it usually was is the fact that I had to accept a licence agreement.
So I added the package through the UI. Manage Packages for SOlution...

This allows you to accept the agreement

I have this issue with the new VS 2015 Preview, with packages without license info or anything, and even with a nuget.config with the key settings using http it fails.
<add key="NuGet official package source" value="http://nuget.org/api/v2/" />

The source at nuget.org [https://www.nuget.org/api/v2/] is unreachable. Falling back to NuGet Local Cache at C:\Users\Terje\AppData\Local\NuGet\Cache

I also noted that it try to use the https even if I have specified http in the nuget.config, so that one seems to be ignored.

Using the Manage Packages for Solution it works with no hickups.

I have tried with elevated privileges for VS, still the same.

It doesn't happen with all packages though, just some. (NUnit works, NUnitTestAdapter doesn't)

Looks like NuGet is down?

All, I just change the link from https to http and it worked like a charm. Please try this.
