Access to the path is denied when updating xamarin packages.

I tried to update the Xamarin.Essentials and Xamarin.Forms packages in the nuget package manager for visual studio, but it gave me the error: Access to the path [path] is denied.

I would upload a screenshot, but I'm new here, so I cannot.

Edit: The same error occurs when trying to download any package.

I figured out my issue, my laptop used to be owned by a company and had something installed which encrypted the c drive and denied access. I am now decrypting it.

    Put a new drive in it. Then build it for development from scratch.
