    The package is now in box and I don't need to install anything. See #54365:

    These packages will no longer be updated because their implementation is now part of the .NET 6 platform:

    • Microsoft.Win32.Registry
    • System.ComponentModel.Annotations
    • System.IO.FileSystem.AccessControl
    • System.IO.Pipes.AccessControl
    • System.Security.AccessControl
    • System.Security.Cryptography.Cng
    • System.Security.Cryptography.OpenSsl
    • System.Security.Principal.Windows
