If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade sourcepreviewhandler -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
