multind.sty is not found.
Does anyone know if it's possible to manually install this package and, if so, how?

By way of explanation, multind is a package for LaTeX 2.09 which is long deprecated (early 90s?) by the availability of LaTeX 2e.
You should take a look at modern packages for including multiple indices. This CTAN topic lists both the obsolete 2.09 package and some current ones.
index is widely used, I think. However, the link on CTAN is broken - it has a long-standing problem with this package. Type
texdoc index to read about it. (I guess it will be packaged in
splitindex is a later development which uses TeX's resources more efficiently. So you can have more than 16 indices or you can use many indices in addition to other things requiring dedicated output streams.
