I'm making a pck file and putting the default icon.png in it this way

var pack = new PCKPacker();
pack.PckStart("dlc.pck", 4);
pack.AddFile("res://qwop.png", "icon.png");
pack.Flush(true);
ProjectSettings.LoadResourcePack("dlc.pck");
var sprite = new Sprite();
sprite.Texture = (Texture)ResourceLoader.Load("res://qwop.png");
AddChild(sprite);

Problem is when I load the "qwop.png" texture to a sprite I get this error

_load: Resource file not found: res://qwop.png.
load: Error loading resource: 'res://qwop.png'.

What am I doing wrong?

This was super confusing for me too :)

Please read this thread: https://github.com/godotengine/godot-docs/issues/2148#issue-400639192

The TL;DR is that you need to treat "imported" and "not imported" files as separate things.

So the code you have looks fine until you call ResourceLoader.Load on the packed png and expect to get a Texture back. Instead, you would have to do the C# equivalent of this

var image = Image.new()
var texture = ImageTexture.new()
image.load('res://qwop.png')
texture.create_from_image(image)
sprite.texture = texture
