Module Install Issues from PowershellGallery

Has anyone been experiencing issues installing modules from PSGallery?

I was installing modules on my new work computer and kept getting error messages indicating the either the source location was invalid.

For trying to install the VMware.PowerCLI module, I get this error message:

PS C:\Users\michael.valdes> install-module VMware.PowerCli
WARNING: Source Location '' is not valid.
PackageManagement\Install-Package : Package 'VMware.VimAutomation.Sdk' failed to download.
At C:\program files\powershell\6\Modules\PowerShellGet\PSModule.psm1:9491 char:21

+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : PackageFailedInstallOrDownload,Microsoft.PowerShell.PackageManagement.Cmdlets.InstallPackage

For the MSOnline module on Windows Powershell 5.1 I was getting this error message:

PS C:\Windows\system32> Install-Module MSOnline -Force
WARNING: Source Location '' is not valid.
PackageManagement\Install-Package : Package 'MSOnline' failed to download.
At C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerShellGet\\PSModule.psm1:1809 char:21

I tried removing removing the repository from my PS configuration by issuing a:

 Unregister-PSRepository -Name PSGallery

followed by a

Register-PSRepository -Default

but when I attempt to install the modules again I get the same errors.

For now I just copied the modules from another computer and placed them in my local module paths. I just thought those errors were weird since I have never seen them before.
