Whenever I try to use the MikTeK Package Manager, I get the error messages "An
existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host." and "connect
failed in tcp_connect()". I have tried to change from Warwick to another
package repository via the "Packages" part of "MixTeX Options" but I cannot
edit the URL in "Package Repository". Please tell me what should I do now.
Did you select the "Change..." button on the "Packages" tab ?
If true, select "Packages shall be installed from the internet" option.
Pressing the "Next" button should present an current list (it may take a
moment to update)
Then select one. I hope this is what you were looking for.
I am having the exact same problem. However, following the steps that Carl
listed above only leads me back to the error message "connect failed in
tcp_connect()". There is no list to select from after pressing "Next" button,
only a pop up MiKteX Problem Report with the connection error message. Any
ideas on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated!
