Environment

  • NPM 11.5.3
  • .NET 4.6

Cause 

This is due to a md5 certificate installed in older versions of NPM 10.1. This is primarily seen in environments that had older versions of NPM and have upgraded over the years. This Certificate is not accepted by the latest .NET 4.6.

Resolution

 

Upgrade to NPM 12
