Anytime there is a failure to update a package TeXlive 2013, and try to reinstall through -reinstall-forcibly-removed command, it complains that it cannot install the file in question, as per the attached error message:

[18/22, 10:41/11:01] auto-install: tex4ht (33024) [872k] ... xzdec: (stdin): Une

tems/texlive/tlnet/archive/tex4ht.tar.xz to C:/texlive/2013
tlmgr.pl: couldn't install new package tex4ht

As the problem with tex4ht started a couple of week ago, I supposed at the beginning was the problem with the Thai server. Last week I was in England, and the Oxford server, or whatever was serving Oxford Uni, gave me the same error. The same happened today for pgfplots package. So I was wondering what should be the procedure in order to let those two packages install.

  • You seem to have some network problems. Try to solve them first. – Martin Schröder Mar 10 '14 at 8:55
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about something which is almost certainly a network error. – Joseph Wright Sep 6 '14 at 21:37
