Unable to install the same package into multiple solutions

I am trying to use the release notes for v2.1 to specify a packages folder.

under my root folder (M:) I have the following

-nuget.config <add key="repositoryPath" value="M:\Packages" />

Packages are being stored in the specified folder but I can only install and manage a package in a single solution. For example, using the above structure, I install a package using the package manager while working with SolutionA. I want to install the same package in SolutionB, but when I view the package manager while in SolutionB I get a "Package already installed" message and there seems to be no way to actually install the package.

Is it possible to have a single location to store packages but then install them in multiple solutions?
