When I created a .NET MAUI project, some NuGet packages were installed by default. These packages are causing errors when I try to reference another project in this project. However, these packages are not listed in the project file, and I am unable to uninstall or update them. The attached image shows the NuGet Packages. Can anyone please help me with the process to uninstall or update these packages? Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

These Packages in net7.0-ios are installed by default when creating the project. These are giving the errors. The error is

Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State Details Error NU1605 Warning As Error: Detected package downgrade: Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection from 8.0.0 to 7.0.0. Reference the package directly from the project to select a different version.

The android packages also gave me the error

Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State Details Error NU1605 Warning As Error: Detected package downgrade: Xamarin.AndroidX.Browser from 1.5.0.3 to 1.4.0.3. Reference the package directly from the project to select a different version.

All the above packages are not able update or uninstall, because the Update or Uninstall buttons are disabled.

    Hello,

    These above packages are installed by default and i'm not able to update or delete them. Only Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.Debug can be deleted from these packages, and the other items are required for MAUI to run. You can open the project's .csproj file and delete the following.

    <ItemGroup>
          <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.Debug" Version="7.0.0" />
    </ItemGroup>
    

    For updates, you could do it in the project file. Please refer to the code below.

    <ItemGroup>
          <PackageReference Include="Nuget Package Name" Version="Version Number" />
    </ItemGroup>
    

    Best Regards, Alec Liu.
