I love LaTeX, and I especially enjoy drawing diagrams in tikz.

Here is a stripped down version of my preamble with some of my most used packages:

\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsthm,amsfonts,bm}
\usepackage{array} % for better arrays (eg matrices) in maths
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float} % To get the placement H for figures
\usepackage{tikz,pgfplots}
\usetikzlibrary{positioning,shapes,shadows,arrows,fit, decorations}
\usepackage[a4paper,top=1.75truecm,bottom=1.75truecm,left=1.75truecm,right=1.75truecm]{geometry}
\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}
\usepackage[bookmarks]{hyperref}
\hypersetup{colorlinks=true, pagebackref=page, citecolor=blue, menucolor=red}
\usepackage{natbib} 
\usepackage{hypernat} 

Another package I find really useful but that is not there is standalone.

comment List of Updates available in TexLive utility the same every time
it seems like it could have to do with the internet at uni. When I do it from home it works, when I do using the university internet it doesn't. I subscribed to the list but I will investigate further before asking them a question.

Actually, it seems like it isn't working. I will have to contact the person you mentioned.

comment List/table with first column in page margin (right aligned)?
To be honest I don't think a MWE is necessary here. The picture should be enough.

@AlanMunn I moved the file to the trash. I need to wait until there are new updates to see if this solution works or not, and when I have an answer I will post here again. Thanks!

@Mico that seems to work, thanks. This though seems more like a workaround than a solution. Do you know how I can make TexLive utility work properly again? Any clue as to what the problem might be? I have reinstalled TexLive utility from the dropdown menu but that did not work.
