Today I installed the SIunits package via the package manager gui. However,
the latex run generates an error saying that it cannot find package
siunits.sty. This file is certainly present, under
C:\bin\miktex2.9\tex\latex\siunits. It is mentioned in
Hence "I cannot find" == "I cannot find siunits.sty in the places I am
I have updated the FNDB from the gui and from the command line, in both user
and admin modes.
Incidentally, where is the fndb? Is it the packages.ini file? If not, can the
fndb be interrogated?
Moving on, I updated my miktex installation, no change to the problem.
Also, I tried another package, with the same result.
On the other hand, last week my installation was missing the layouts package
but that got installed automatically.
Summarising, I guess that there is something wrong with my miktex installation
but I cannot see how to make progress with investigating the problem.
All suggestions gratefully received,
If you have on-the-fly installation enable and miktex can't find a known
package it should try to install it on-the-fly. So my first suspicion is that
you had some typo in your document. If you don't think that this is the source
of your problem: show a complete, small example that demonstrates your problem
and the log-file.
Fixed. It was a typo as you suggested.
