Step 1: Disable precompile updating below property in csproj file:
<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk.Web"> <PropertyGroup> <TargetFramework>netcoreapp2.1</TargetFramework> <MvcRazorCompileOnPublish>false</MvcRazorCompileOnPublish> </PropertyGroup> ...
Step2: clear cache This method worked for me: delete obj and bin folders
other: It looks as if your project references are incorrect. You can reproduce what I'm seeing by doing the following: At the command line run dotnet nuget locals all -c At the command line run dotnet restore At the command line run dotnet build This will get you into a clean state where any customized VS feeds or local feeds shouldn't impact you..
