    I have installed all available packages OK, but one: miktex-pdftex-base, which
    will not install.

    miktex-pdftex-base has been renamed to miktex-pdftex-base-2.9. Try to install
    this package.

    Yes, I had no problem installing miktex-pdftex-base-2.9. However, with miktex-
    pdftex-base as an entry, I cannot simply choose all Installable packages to
    add, as the install stops dead unless I unclick miktex-pdftex-base each time.
    Wouldn't it be best to remove miktex-pdftex-base from the list of packages?

    I don't see an entry for miktex-pdftex-base. Synchronize your repository.
