I was about to edit my CV that I created a year ago with pdflatex. However my computer setup has changed since then. I don't exactly understand why I cannot compile it with my current setup.

I tried using 'pdflatex filename.tex' in the terminal, but it is not working. The missfont.log says:

mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 umvs

I am not sure what information I should otherwise add but these are the includes I am using in my .tex file:



I tried:

sudo apt install texlive-latex-extra

downloading went fine but at the end I get this message:

Running mktexlsr. This may take some time... done. Running updmap-sys. This may take some time...
updmap-sys failed. Output has been stored in /tmp/updmap.vZar5H3y Please include this file if you report a bug.

Sometimes, not accepting conffile updates in /etc/texmf/updmap.d causes updmap-sys to fail. Please check for files with extension .dpkg-dist or .ucf-dist in this directory

dpkg: error processing package tex-common (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: tex-common E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


I would recommend to run the following command:

sudo apt-get install texlive-full

This will install the missing packages and other files necessary to run TeXLive.
