I'm having some problems getting TexLive Utility to work with the repository to update packages.
I received an error that said subfigure was an undefined environment in the RCS Journal template I was using, and some further googling told me that the package was deprecated. I copied in some elements of my preamble from my thesis where I know this environment had worked previously but no joy. I tried to update packages through TexLive utility from MacTEX and then received the error that the CTAN repository was running the 2014 version and I was still running the 2013. I elected to manually upgrade and followed the instructions found here:
I have now got a 2014 folder in the correct directory alongside the 2013 folder that already existed from my current installation. As far as I can tell, everything worked fine (other than I had to
sudo the installer on OSX).
I then added the binaries to my
$PATH, as instructed, but I've never done this before and don't know if it is correct. It is meant to look like the below:
and so I exported that.
echo $PATH mine looks like:
My guess is that this is where at least part of my problem is coming from. But to continue, I thought I had solved this, so proceeded to test TexLive Utility, but alas the same error. I thought that perhaps the utility needed reinstalling so I redownloaded and installed MacTeX. Same problems (it was a long shot I knew :P )
TL;DR It seems to my naive brain, that the TexLive util is still trying to use the 2013 binary, rather than the new 2014 ones, but I don't know how to change what the application addresses.
Any help (ASAP) would be greatly appreciated.
