Package Manager is missing on old project.

    I am using Unity 2018.3.0f2.

    I have installed everything described here but still Package Manager is missing for my old project. I tried deleting the whole line `"com.unity.package-manager-ui": "2.0.3",` but still PM is missing.

    When I create new fresh project PM is visible there, but this is not important for me. I need to make my old project running fine again. Can someone assist please ?

    I have my editors log attached.

    Maybe create a completely new project and, if the package manager is there, import your old project assets into the new project?

    Hello @VivasIndustries, @Willemvd,

    That is not a great experience. Let me see if we can see what the issue is:

    If you do this, you're explicitly removing the package manager ui from Unity, which will remove the UI and it will not longer appear.

    I took a look at the logs and it seems you have no problem fetching from the registry ("[Package Manager] Done resolving packages in 0.22s seconds"), but you do seem to have compilation issues that are currently stopping the Package Manager UI to be properly compiled at load. This is a known issue, and under way, but I can't say when it will land.

    There are two options that I can think of:
    • Resolve compilation issues (tmp seems to be loaded twice for example)
    • Backup your project (i would personally clone and rename just to make sure), under HELP tab, do RESET to PACKAGE defaults.
    Let me know if that helps.
