I am very new to LaTex I am trying to work with xcookybooky package and get the following error message and have no idea what to do. Sorry, but miktex-makemf did not succeed for the following reason:

The fjdmw8r source file could not be found. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again: C:/Users/Irene/AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makemf.log You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.

Sorry, but miktex-makepk did not succeed for the following reason: PK font fjdmw8r could not be created. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again:

C:/Users/Irene/AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makepk.log You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.

Process exited with error(s).

    Run updmap on a command line. If this doesn't help, make a complete example that demonstrates the error. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 19 '18 at 20:50

Please run this command:

updmap.exe --admin

or

updmap.exe --force

for example:

C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64>updmap.exe  --force

    Right way helped me! Any idea what's the cause? Because I updated miktex using GUI, how this command line update is different? Thank you! – kunal18 Mar 14 at 16:26
  • It worked for me as well! How did you know that is the problem? It looks random :) – C.Koca Jun 13 at 10:03
