Error: ‘NanoServerPackage’ cannot be installed because the catalog signature in ‘NanoServerPackage.cat’ does not match the hash

After a Nano Server has been installed, you can manage the server roles and features by using the PackageManagement provider. To install the provider, run the Install-PackageProvider NanoServerPackage command. But by running this command you can encounter this error as below.

To resolve this issue Microsoft suggests to reboot the machine but in the case, it does not work you can use these commands as a workaround.

After you have the package provider installed, you can use the following PowerShell cmdlets to find and add packages to Nano server:

  • Find-NanoServerPackage
  • Save-NanoServerPackage
  • Install-NanoServerPackage

For example, in this case we will configure this Nano server as an Hyper-V host through the use of Compute package.
