I got this error when compiling:

"" ! LaTeX Error: File `scrextend.sty' not found.

Type X to quit or to proceed, or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

Enter file name:


It was alright, and never had the problem. It came up since I updated my mac, however, I installed McTex. I keep entering, and it makes pdf. But, i can't see what is missing.

Any suggestion please?
