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
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.

comment Siunitx: alignment, parentheses and font size
@Qrrbrbirlbel I can see it is there, but there are other things in that MWE that are not essential for this to work. I was just noting it for future reference (not because I knew it, but because I tried to incorporate this in a document I am working on and it wasn't working. I spent some time trying to figure it out and wanted to save other people from also wasting time).

comment Siunitx: alignment, parentheses and font size
Without the option [detect-all] when calling the package siunitx, the command \bfseries doesn't work (no error, it just doesn't make it bold).
