The current .NET SDK does not support targeting .NET Core 2.2


We currently use BitBucket Pipelines to connect to Sonarcloud for our code review process. During the build, we’re getting the following error stating “The current .NET SDK does not support targeting.NET Core 2.2.” Our previous builds were pointing to "/usr/share/dotnet/sdk/2.2.207 and nothing has changed in our build process.

Has anyone experieinced something similar? If so what was the solution to change the “usr/share/dotnet/sdk” path to point to 2.2?

Thanks for the assistance in advance!

Pipeline output:
+ dotnet restore
/usr/share/dotnet/sdk/2.1.803/Sdks/Microsoft.NET.Sdk/targets/Microsoft.NET.TargetFrameworkInference.targets(137,5): error NETSDK1045: The current .NET SDK does not support targeting .NET Core 2.2. Either target .NET Core 2.1 or lower, or use a version of the .NET SDK that supports .NET Core 2.2.

Hi @gcdev and welcome to the community !

As @irobin suggest, you can specify the version of the sdk that you want with the tag of the docket image.

And it seems that you use pretty old version of those images (at least for the naming), check out the official MS docker hub, and try with the newest one along with a correct tag, it should probably help you :


Thank you @irobin and @mickaelcaro for your recommendations.

I updated my docker image to point to the sdk version 2.2 and everything worked as expected.

Thanks again!
