Sitecore CLI Installation Failure or Wrong Version Installed

Recently developers are facing issues when installing Sitecore CLI. Or it may install version 5.0.16 which is not released officially. 

PS C:\Project\Working\cli1> dotnet tool install --add-source= sitecore.cli
You can invoke the tool from this directory using the following commands: 'dotnet tool run sitecore' or 'dotnet sitecore'.
Tool 'sitecore.cli' (version '5.0.16') was successfully installed. Entry is added to the manifest file C:\Project\Working\cli1\.config\dotnet-tools.json.

error NU1202: Package sitecore.cli 5.0.16 is not compatible with netcoreapp3.1 (.NETCoreApp,Version=v3.1) / any. Package sitecore.cli 5.0.16 supports: net6.0 (.NETCoreApp,Version=v6.0) / any
The tool package could not be restored.
Tool 'sitecore.cli' failed to install. This failure may have been caused by:

* You are attempting to install a preview release and did not use the --version option to specify the version.
* A package by this name was found, but it was not a .NET Core tool.
* The required NuGet feed cannot be accessed, perhaps because of an Internet connection problem.
* You mistyped the name of the tool.

Sitecore Official release version for Sitecore CLI as of July 7th 2022 is 4.2.1. Unofficially Sitecore published Sitecore CLI 5.0 as they are testing the new features. 

Anyone who installs Sitecore CLI without a specific version will get v5.0. Add version parameter to install the specific version to avoid this issue. 

dotnet tool install --add-source= sitecore.cli --version 4.2.1
