Winget error: 0x80190194 : Not found (404)

Winget cannot find the software to install.

Today I had a small problem with “winget”, it would not find and install the software. I tested different programmes, the same error everywhere.

PS C:\Users\andyd> winget install –id=WinSCP.WinSCP -e
Error when trying to update the source: winget
Unexpected error when executing the command:
Download request status is not success.
0x80190194 : Not found (404).

Solution: Update the package sources

The solution was simple. Similar to Linux, the package sources should be updated from time to time. The following command is available for this:

winget source update

The download and installation then worked.
