The tool package could not be restored.
Tool ‘powershell’ failed to install. This failure may have been caused by:

* You are attempting to install a preview release and did not use the –version option to specify the version.
* A package by this name was found, but it was not a .NET tool.
* The required NuGet feed cannot be accessed, perhaps because of an Internet connection problem.
* You mistyped the name of the tool.

Solution:

In order to resolve the error you should install .NET 7.

Download .NET 7.0 (Linux, macOS, and Windows) (microsoft.com)
