Complete LaTeX begginer here! I've installed MiKTeX and Texmaker but when I try to run the build I get these errors:


I download the file using mpm package manager just to find out that other file in allPacks.tex not found. How to install all MiKTeX packages at once?

    Welcome, do you have the basic installation of MikTeX or the full installation. The message can be expected with the minimal install. – Johannes_B Oct 29 '16 at 12:29
  • To get a full MiKTeX install you need to use the MiKTeX Net Installer, with the basic installation of MiKTeX you can use the Package Manager to install extra packages. – Dai Bowen Oct 29 '16 at 12:41
  • You can open the package manager (admin), select all uninstalled package and let it work. – Ulrike Fischer Oct 29 '16 at 13:29

I think you are unfortunate to have installed MiKTeX in a moment when their server is disabled. See Ulrike Fischer's answer here: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/284940/114544. You should be able to download packages as soon as the repositories are up again.
