I am running a freshly installed MiKTeX set-up (v2.9, x64) but it fails to install updates through the "Update" tool. After selecting packages to update, it downloads them but then interrupts the process with this error:
the MiKTeX package management utility could not be found.
And when trying to open the Update tool from the "Package Manager" I immediately get this error:
The update helper could not be found.
After some googling (see links below) I have come to believe that both problems are caused by the fact
mpm.exe seems to be missing on my system.
Could anyone perhaps provide me with that missing exe? Preferably the x64 version.
Edit Possibly related bug reports I found:
