If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade dotnetcore -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {

.NET Core is a general purpose development platform maintained by Microsoft and the .NET community on GitHub. It is cross-platform, supporting Windows, macOS and Linux, and can be used in device, cloud, and embedded/IoT scenarios.

This package is required to run console applications with the .NET Core runtime (it is effectively an alias for the dotnetcore-runtime package). For running ASP.NET Core applications on IIS or IIS Express, install the dotnetcore-windowshosting package. For developing .NET Core applications, install the dotnetcore-sdk package.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
