Packages not being restored

I'm attempting to run a build using "Visual Studio 2015" OS image, and have read through the discussions and configured DNX_FEED variable, and set my install script to:

set PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin;%PATH%
dnvm install 1.0.0-beta5

BTW, "Visual Studio 2015" image is the final release that came out last week, right?

It appears like it's not attempting to restore any nuget packages:

>> Unable to resolve dependency Microsoft.AspNet.Mvc 6.0.0-beta5

On my local machine, this happens automatically, and I believe this should happen automatically upon build, correct?

Anything I'm missing to get packages to restore?

    Hi Kirk,

    Could you please do a small test project in public repo to play with?

    Actually, just had a bright idea, and added this after the call to 'dnvm...':

    dnu restore

    Worked like a charm, and now packages are restored. Had thought this would happen automatically.

    All good for now, thanks.

    Thanks Kirk, it helped me a lot.
    If anyone is interested here's how I've convinced AppVeyor to build my ASP.NET 5 app running on DNX 1.0.0-beta5:
