I did a brief search of the mailing list and didn't find a post same as
my problem. I've been updating miktex for several years via automatic
update. But for the past couple of days, whether choosing the last-used
repository site or trying to "choose a remote package repository"
option, I get the
"Host not found
Details: get host by name failed in tcp_connect()"
error. Package Manager shows the last updated package as
miktex-runtime-bin-2.9 installed on Feb. 7, 2013. MikTex 2.9 is
installed on an XP MCE machine.
Any insight into what's causing the sudden problem? Could it be a
faulty installation of the last updated package? Where can I find the
relevant log files?
