    Hi,

    For some reason, the Package Manager window doesn't list all the available packages. I've had this issue for the past few weeks.

    I initially attributed it to an issue with the Update Server (was getting a message saying "Couldn't connect to the update server" on checking for updates), but it persists even when the connection is proper.

    I'm currently on Unity 2018.2.0f2 on MacOS High Sierra. This issue was present for me in 2018.1.4 and 2018.1.6 as well.

    I'm attaching a screenshot of the listed packages currently under All. Note that packages like AR Foundation are missing.

    Edit: The issue persists even after a clean install of Unity (deleting cache, etc)

    I will add to this question by expanding on that list of missing packages... I have nearly 500 packages that I downloaded from the Asset Store and if this is supposed to list "All packages" then why am I not seeing my 500 packages but only a handful?

    Looking at that list form the screenshot, now that TextMeshPro gives me loads of "This class already exists" errors when I install it directly via the asset store I am assuming TextMeshPro now HAS to be installed via this and can, for all sense and purposes be removed from the Asset Store now... but looking at that list, nothing from the Asset Store is actually listed there so if this package manager doesn't support Asset Store packages then what exactly constitutes "All packages" ?

    Hi,

    For comparison, I'm attaching another screenshot showing the full list which normally is displayed. This is taken from another system running Unity 2018.2 on MacOS High Sierra. The same list appears in the others as well, except mine.

    @WereVarg You can access it from Window->Package Manager

    Hello, I have a similar problem. I have missing packages as well, including 2D Pixel Perfect, which I need to use. (I have 2D Animation; 2D IK; 2D Sprite Shape but dont have pixel perfect)

    Could you find any solution to this problem?

    Sometimes appear, sometimes not, when I restart Unity, after a time the packages appear
