WARNING: Unable to resolve package source 'https://ci.appveyor.com/nuget/docker


Studying for 70-740 Exam and not able to get a common script to work. I have exhaustively googled the issue and am still not able find a solution.

Below is the code I am trying to run. I can get the DockerPS-Dev to download but when I run the Install-Module Docker -Repository DockerPS-Dev -Scope AllUsers -Force , I get the below error.

download and install powershell for containers (http://cbt.gg/2uZtKFn)
