I am attempting to install the Az module for powershell. I haven't had issues in the past but now I get errors when trying to do so and I have tried many ways to do this.
It seems like an issue on the powershellgallery site but I am not 100% sure.
Here's my situation
I have attempted many of the switches -Force -AllowClobber etc ... attempted to install by downloading locally but not sure I am doing that right as it doesn't seem to work with the instructions I have found around the web.
This started sometime last week, perhaps Thursday.
I'm at a loss, been trying this for way too long.
Thanks ahead of time!

@FineSL60 Register your repository? If registered, de-register and re-add.

I am also facing the same issue. I have admin privileges and running PS as admin.
PFB the error scenario.
Tried to access the link https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/package/Az.Accounts/1.7.4 via IE on the machine and the package az.accounts.1.7.4.nupkg is getting downloaded without any issue. Hence it seems to be an issue with PS only, as PC can access the link.
Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

I am just curious, why did it require that? Just a guess or is there something behind it? I can't find a good reason for it lol.

I guessed it ought to be security because access using a browser was successful so connectivity was not the issue.
Happy this helped you out :)

I had the same issue on the same day, so kept track of the conversation, it was great that they announced that they dropped less than TLS 1.2 support only on the 9th, after already having done so: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/powershell/powershell-gallery-tls-support/
