    Hi @Vijayadithyan .N ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    It is a known issue and has been fixed:
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/t/dependent-package-of-MicrosoftVisualStu/10114750

    To resolve it, please navigate to the path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer and run the command: InstallCleanup.exe -full, which could help to remove the previous install cache.
    Then, re-download the latest release of VS2022 in the Download page to install it.

    Sincerely,
    Anna
