    I'm unable to access all the packages from the package manager due to something with my corporate firewall.

    Is there a way to download the packages manually and install them manually?

    This is very frustrating not being able to access key unity features which are now located in packages. I used to be able to get everything from the asset store which does work with my corporate firewall but now the updates are in the package manager instead of through the asset store.

    Yeah I tried to get help on it once already.

    I think the problem is that the proxy requires a login and/or there's an issue with the certificates. I tried to get through it with my IT support but that wasn't helping. I'm able to use https://elifulkerson.com/projects/tcping.php to hit all the domains listed but I'm still not seeing all the packages in the package manager. It might have something to do with the self signed certificates that are listed here https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/upm-network.html, which I don't quite understand.

    So I downloaded a package from the website and when I added it to unity I get the following error now. I haven't seen the error before installing a package manually.
    https://download.packages.unity.com

    Failed to fetch version information:
    Cannot connect to '75.126.118.184:443' (error code: ECONNREFUSED). Verify your environment firewall policies all connection to this host name. If you system is behind a proxy, verify your proxy environment variables (HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY) are properly set.
