Microsoft has recently released new versions of .NET Core, ASP.NET Core and the development tools.
If you were playing around with earlier builds of the
dotnet CLI and you want (it is not really a question of whether you want or not ;)) to upgrade to the new version you have to remove all traces of any installed versions first.
Luckily Microsoft provides a simple script that we can execute as follows:
# Get elevated privileges sudo su # Download and execute the uninstall script curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dotnet/cli/rel/1.0.0/scripts/obtain/uninstall/dotnet-uninstall-pkgs.sh | bash
dotnet --info or
dotnet --version should return the correct version number now:
dotnet --info .NET Command Line Tools (1.0.0-preview2-002820) Product Information: Version: 1.0.0-preview2-002820 Commit SHA-1 hash: d307537eb8 Runtime Environment: OS Name: Mac OS X OS Version: 10.11 OS Platform: Darwin RID: osx.10.11-x64
