MiKTeX Problem: Couldn't resolve host name

Postby sanae » Sun Dec 25, 2016 9:40 pm

Hi.
I tried an update of my miktex2.9 on win 7, but started getting "Couldn't resolve host name" from MiKTeX Package Manager each time I tried installing a new package . Can I seek your advice on how I should overcome this? Thank you in advanced.

Here is the log error when I try to instal new package :

Hi Sanae!

Were you able to solve the problem? If not, you could install TeX Lice instead. I switched from MiKTeX to TeX Live a long time ago and I'm very satisfied with it. Both are fine, I just read more about issues with MiKTeX than with TeX Live.
Installation works via https://www.tug.org/texlive/ .
