I have a problem with the MiKTeX package manager. I receive the message:
The MiKTeX web service has rejected your request. Possible reason: too many requests arriving from your IP address.
HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.
I cannot even choose another repository. Maybe this all was caused by my having killed the process on my first try with ctrl-alt-del? Can it be that at the server a "zombie" of that killed process is still present? Will the problem go away by itself?
