I have MiKTeX 2.9 basic installation (using Windows). When I go into the package manager and try to install
colortbl package (to get
colortbl.sty) I get the following message:
Error response from server: 404
Am I doing something wrong?
MiKTeX Package Manager is synchronized with the last used 'Package Repository'.
Your error occurs when the last used one is a CTAN mirror, which is currently down.
To overcome this, choose a different mirror through the command 'Change Package Repository' from the 'Repository' menu, as shown in the following image:
After a MiKTeX update, it is also recommended to run the 'Synchronize' command from the same menu, otherwise you lose the synchronization between your installed MiKTeX distribution and the latest one available on CTAN.
