I installed new copy (released on Nov 15, 2016) of MikTeX on my Windows 10 from here and noticed that when I search in MiKTeX Package Manager it's missing amssymb package. When I search for keyword ams I see packages shown below. Is amssymb part of any of the following packages? If not, how can I install amssymb? enter image description here
