Unable pushing NuGet package to GitHub Packages with "The expected resource was not found."

I’m trying to push the NuGet package to GitHub Packages in mine, but I can’t push them.

I’ve downloaded NuGet package helloworld. from nuget.org for testing.

With nuget.exe;

>nuget.exe push helloworld. -Source "GitHub"
Pushing helloworld. to 'https://nuget.pkg.github.com/haeillee'...

The same error has been founded.

Absolutely, I’ve set all configurations for this (Personal access tokens, apikeys, …).

Should I wait until GitHub Package become stable?

I’m also getting the same error, Response status code does not indicate success : 404 (Not Found)

and stuck with this issue now.

Your repository must have the same name as your nuget package.


That’s worked for me using curl.


I have the same error

Sorry, I’ve tried but got same error… :frowning:

Same here, with Curl, with same name of the package as that of the repo, or with nuget cli.

Followed this guide https://help.github.com/en/github/managing-packages-with-github-packages/configuring-dotnet-cli-for-use-with-github-packages and ended up having the same issue.

I’m in the same boat. Anyone was able to sort this one out?

It turns out my github personal access token was missing repo permissions. Having write:packages, read:packages and delete:packages permissions wasn’t enough.


Make sure you correctly specified repository url, as in

I got this working by adding this to my nuspec file

<repository type="git" url="https://github.com/user-name/repo-name" />

You can also specify it on the command line (dotnet or MSBuild) using -p:RepositoryUrl=

I have a token with full access to the repo and the package registry and I’m still getting the same error. By the way, I’m trying to publish a RubyGem, not a Nuget package. It seems that this bug is all over. 

Hitting the same issue when publishing a .NetCore2.1 library from Windows command line.

C:\TestProject>nuget push source\TestProject.Core.Domain\bin\Release\TestProject.Core.Domain. -Source "github"
WARNING: No API Key was provided and no API Key could be found for 'https://nuget.pkg.github.com/ABCCorp'. To save an API Key for a source use the 'setApiKey' command.
Pushing TestProject.Core.Domain. to 'https://nuget.pkg.github.com/ABCCorp'...
  PUT https://nuget.pkg.github.com/ABCCorp/
WARNING: The expected resource was not found.
  NotFound https://nuget.pkg.github.com/ABCCorp/ 1820ms
Response status code does not indicate success: 404 (Not Found).

Have followed advice in every post/example I can find.

Using a Personal Access Token with repo, write:packages, read:packages and delete:packages scope.

Have tried using a nuget.config file, and adding source on command line.

Project file specifies the RepositoryURL, PackageId, RepositoryType, Company, Version etc.

Really can’t see why this wouldn’t work.

I found a fix for this, I triple checked I had all my names set correct per the GitHub documentation and nothing worked…finally I decided to pull dotnet out of the equation and just a nuget push…voila, it worked like a champ! Try your push command without the dotnet prefix…

Were you able to resolve this? I’m having the same problem attempting to push a ruby gem

I have the same error. But, I integrate some APIs of google in my account. You can read here to documents.

My fix for this was to add the entire tree of repo properties to the personal access token (also mentioned above in this thread).

My key was failing before and worked after this single change.

I then recalled that I had created an access token for this purpose before … in reviewing it, the permissions of that key included the the repo tree of permissions.
