Recently I was unable to commit changes to online repo for a custom API I created for SharePoint. Before I was able to commit but after recent updates, VS is now throwing this errror:

The required version of SharePoint Foundation or SharePoint Server is not installed on this system. The target version of the SharePoint project is 2019.

PS: im trying to publish on same computer, same user, same azure repo account.

    Hi Michael,

    I found out it was the .NET version.
    At first I created the solution using .NET version 4.6.2, created the online repo, and was able to push proceeding updates.
    Later I changed the solution's .NET version to 4.7.2, since then all my publish was stuck to Outgoing Push state.

    I also noticed error message showing in the output is not related at all because that particular issue where SharePoint server is missing is still there but the publish-and-commit-all was successful.

    Hi @Jefferson Mendoza ,

    Which kind of sharepoint project did you build?

    For SharePoint farm solution, you need to install Visual Studio in the SharePoint Server.

    We can develop SharePoint add-in solution in remote server.
