comment Ligatures with Alegreya Font in XeLaTeX
Texmaker is not relevant, but what is your texlive and xelatex version?

comment Ligatures with Alegreya Font in XeLaTeX
I get ligatures with texlive 2015 and miktex.

comment Accuracy of distance measures in geometry
@Sverre: Measures on a print out are never accurate. Paper in a printer can move a bit. Print the example with the arrow (you can add some more, or rulers to get a better impression).

comment Accuracy of distance measures in geometry
@daleif: I have a lot of training with such arrows. I'm placing them everywhere to check distances ;-)

comment Accuracy of distance measures in geometry
Yes. You naturally have to trust the length calculations of tikz (I do).

Start the package manager (admin), synchronize (menu repositories) and check if all miktex-packages are installed (specifically the miktex-log4cxx package).

comment pdfpages does not correctly scale inserted pdf pages
Other pdf files from the same source? What happens when you try an image from the mwe package with \includepdf{example-image}? Can you make a small but complete example and show the code and the log file?

comment pdfpages does not correctly scale inserted pdf pages
Give "thumbnails" a new meaning. Did you try with some other pdf-file? Did you try to scale the pages (scale=10 or so)?

comment MiKTeX won't typeset
Make sure that you don't have any other miktex program running when opening the package manager / installing packages / updating.

comment MiKTeX won't typeset
@moewe: I don't think that is the same problem. The one is a (probably harmless) error at the end of the installation, this here is an error while trying to compile.

comment MiKTeX won't typeset
At first, don't do first tests with texify. Use pdflatex, at best on a small document on the command line. If this fails too: Open the package manager (admin), use repositories -> synchronize, and then check if all packages starting with miktex are installed. Then open the update manager (admin) and check if there are updates.

comment lua(la)tex vs pdf(la)tex speed in texlive 2015
@Robert: Why does microtype loops over 1114111 in \MT@do@font when used with lualatex but not with xelatex? Both are using open type fonts, so the font type can't be the only reason.

comment lua(la)tex vs pdf(la)tex speed in texlive 2015
@percusse: microtype together with lualatex. maps over all unicode values for some setups and so does loops of the length of 1114111. The documentation says "there ought to be a better way!". Try out \makeatletter \def\MT@max@slot {1000 }\makeatother directly after loading microtype and you will see that it is much faster.

comment Using setmonofont with Bera Sans Mono in Beamer produces garbled output
I should have checked first. There is no opentype font "bera sans mono", it is a type1 font. You shouldn't load it with \setmonofont.Try \setmonofont{Bitstream Vera Sans Mono}[Scale=0.9]` instead.

comment Using setmonofont with Bera Sans Mono in Beamer produces garbled output
Probably xetex and/or xdvipdfmx is finding a wrong font. This can happen if there are two versions of a font on a system. Add \XeTeXtracingfonts= 1 to your document, and then compile on the command line with xelatex --nopdf file and xdvipdfmx -vv file.xdv then the log and the terminal output will show the pathes of the fonts used.

comment Error in Updating FNDB after last update
Start the package manager (admin and then user version). Click on "repositories -> synchronize". Then search for new packages starting with miktex and install them. Then try again to create the fndb and the formats.
