I'm having a difficult time reproducing this, but one wrench environment is consistently failing a NuGet restore with only the message "Data unprotection failed.". Is there a way for me to gather more information from command line when this failure occurs?
The same restoration is working when mono 4.0.0 is installed on this machine, but has started failing on mono 4.2.0-pre-branch runs.
mono-4.2.0-pre-branch / 9542068d4aa9
You should be able to get the full callstack by using the -verbosity argument:
mono NuGet.exe restore -verbosity detailed
This is fixed in master and mono-4.2.0-pre-branch:
@Prashant - Mono no longer installs a symlink into /usr/bin but puts one in /usr/local/bin. Unfortunately /usr/local/bin is not on the path for GUI applications so running nuget or mono from inside Xamarin Studio will not work currently. I believe there is a fix going into Xamarin Studio to handle this but for now you will have to specify the full path to nuget or mono or just open a terminal window and run the commands from there. In the terminal window /usr/local/bin should be on the path. It may be easier to run the commands from the terminal window since the Package Console Extension on the Mac does not show the output from the command being run.
I have checked this issue and now this issue is working fine. To verify this issue I followed the steps mentioned in comment 7. I Observed that I am successfully able to restore the packages (only available from Xamarin's Team City server) from the command line (after clear out the local nuget cache) using Stable Mono 22.214.171.124 and cycle 6 Mono 126.96.36.199.

My build server works great on the current stable 4.2 release, but if I switch to the current Alpha, 4.3 This error shows up for me during Nuget install.
Also, I am not using any nuget.config files or private nuget feeds
Bug #38712 is being used to track the problem in Mono 4.3.
I'm on XS alpha channel and have this issue too, just like Clancey.
This is broken in Mono 18.104.22.168 that was released to the alpha channel.
Indeed, it's still broken in Alpha (and Beta now). It's been known for roughly two months now and is being tracked in Bug #38712.
