I want to use arrow.meta, so I have to update MiKTeX from 2.9 to 3.0. I use miktex-update_admin to update MiKTeX, but the internet always breaks and even I finish the updating, the version is still 2.9.

Can anyone tell me how to how to update MiKteX from 2.9 to 3.0?

    Never heard of a 3.0 version. Where did you see it?

  • @Bernard the correct version for \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \pgfversion \end{document} is 3.0.1a, but mine is 2.9

    That's a pgf version not a miktex version. Did you install pgf as admin or as user? Jan 22, 2018 at 10:00

    As I said: show the log-file of a compilation. Jan 22, 2018 at 13:57

    This is not a log-file. It is a screenshot from the windows explorer. Try to update with miktex-update.exe (not the admin version). Jan 22, 2018 at 14:40
