The Source parameter does not support the type provided?

In VSTS, I am getting this error when trying to deploy from DLM Automation Release. I've bolded the relevant errors in this log. I don't have a clue what this is referring to.

    When the script runs, it's trying to automatically download the DLMAutomation module from the PowerShell gallery https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/DLMAutomation/2.1.3.2175

    If it can't download the module from the gallery, it tries to see if you installed DLM using one of our installers and use the module from the installation directory.

    The module contains all the cmdlets needed by the VSTS plugin to execute the database build and release.

    Make sure you have access to the Internet so that the script can correctly download the module from the PS gallery or manually install DLM on your agent. Alternatively, you can manually install the module using the Install-Module cmdlet.

    However, I recommend you to use version 3 of the VSTS plugins now called SQL Change Automation that is using the latest version of the module from the PS Gallery. The older DLMAutomation module is no longer maintained. This is the link to the new module https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/SqlChangeAutomation/3.1.3.3059

    This screenshot shows how you can upgrade to version 3



    You no longer need to install SQL Change Automation on your agents. The VSTS plugins should automatically download the latest SqlChangeAutomation module from the gallery.
     
    After the upgrade, all your pipelines should continue to work as before. In specific scenarios, you might need to make some minor adjustments. If you need any help, just ask in the forum or contact support at [email protected]
