when i did in appcmd:
c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config -section: webFarms /[name='elma'apter.platformProvision.feedUrl:"https://webpifeed.blob.core.windows.net/webpifeed/3.0 /webproductlist.xml "/ commit: apphost
then the provisioning platforms opened, but wpi also threw an error

web platform installer 3.0 is a very old version. I suggest you could use the latest version 5.1. you can get it from the below link.
Web Platform Installer
the reason behind the error is WFF 2.2 depends on the components of WPI 3.0. and the support of web platform installer 3.0 is ended.
The WPI 3.0 feed is deployed to a new URL.to fix this issue you must include the new platform provision feed URL in the ApplicationHost.config file, and then change the file manually by using Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager GUI or by running
an AppCmd command.
To update the ApplicationHost.config file, use one of the following methods.
Use the IIS Manager GUI
1)open iis manager.
2)Click the server name, and then click the Configuration Editor module from the middle pane.
3)Select Web Farms from the Section menu.
4)in collection row click three dots(...)
5)Select the Web Farms row, and then expand platformProvision from properties.
6)Change the feed URL to the following:
7)If the WFF service does not receive the change automatically, restart WFF and IIS. To verify that the change took effect, open the ApplicationHost.config file and search for an updated platformProvision element.
8)To verify that the change is working as expected, click Servers under Server Farm. You should see no errors reported.
you could also use a command to do this changes:
%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config -section:webFarms /[name='MMAIISfarm-DEV'].platformProvision.feedUrl:"https://webpifeed.blob.core.windows.net/webpifeed/3.0/webproductlist.xml" /commit:apphost

Thank you I'll try!
But I want to note that version 5.1 after installation works in IIS, but after installing farm 1.1 (it doesn’t find another one), if i try to find it again, 1) it appears as an uninstalled component, 2) or the following components are unavailable: application
and platform provisioning
So I tried with farm 2.2 and WPI 3

after installing a web platform installer 5.1 you can install a web farm from it. and restart the iis server after installing a web farm.
you can se the server farms under the server node:
