Until the source has been refreshed the first time, there is no
mods.d.tar.gz obtained and expanded, in order to know what is available
from the source to be installed.  So you always have to refresh before
you can do anything else, such as obtain any of its modules.

Once you ask installmgr (or its subsystem in the UI) to install a
module, it has to be one of the module names it learned from refreshing
the source, and the files should end up with the *.conf under mods.d and
the module's content files under modules/whatever/path/is/in/DataPath.

That's how it works under Linux and Windows; is the directory
arrangement different for MacOS?
