    See https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-core/3.1 ie .NET 3.1 requires Visual Studio 2019.

    You can start from https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-core  then. According to https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-core/2.1 using .NET 2.1 with Visual Studio 2017 (v15.9) should work. Make sure what is your exact VS 2017 version.

    Note also that 2.2 is out of support. In short  "Long Term Support (LTS)" versions are supported until the next LTS versions plus one year. "Current" versions are supported until the next version plus 3 months and should likely be used if you absolutely need one of their brand new feature.

    And you checked your VS 2017 version? I'm using VS 2019 but kept  VS 2017 and I see ASP.NET Core 2.1.

    Not sure what you installed but I would just launch "Visual Studio Installer" to upgrade VS 2017 to the latest version. AFAIK it should just include .NET Core 2.1 as part of the "Web Development" workload.

    The recommendation is installing VS 2019 to get the latest tools.

    If you are unable to install Vs 2019 due to company policy, then you are stuck with ASP.NET Core 2.2 or lower.  Keep in mind, 2.1 is LTS.

    You have to take the time to read the SDK release notes to make sure you download the correct version.  you also need to make sure VS 2017 is up to date.
