I encountered problem with LaTeX hyphenation. Because it happened for the first time, I presume that the mistake is done by me, not by packages.

Nevertheless, I cannot find what is wrong with my code.

[Edit] Example to compile:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[british]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{bm}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{algorithm}
\usepackage{algpseudocode}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{longtable}
\begin{document}
\section{Test}
But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of of attenuation I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness.
\end{document}

The PDF is builded by Pdflatex

The output is: The problem with attenuation hyphenation

As you can see, the word attenuation is wrongly hyphenated (probably not hyphenated at all).

Help me spot my mistake. Additionally, I will be grateful if you point any bad habits in my code. P.S. I've checked log of known exceptions, the attenuation is not present on this list, so the error is obviously on my side.

    Make a complete example that can be compiled. Hyphenation depends on the complete paragraph (e.g. if a line would be underfull with a hyphenation). – Ulrike Fischer Feb 20 '18 at 12:03

    your \hyphenation line is doing nothing as they are exactly the hyphenation points chosen by the british patterns – David Carlisle Feb 20 '18 at 12:21

Your latex format is broken, the start of the log shows

LaTeX2e <2017-04-15>
Babel <3.18> and hyphenation patterns for 0 language(s) loaded.

so you have no hyphenation patterns loaded for any language.

This should have given an error when the format was made, but if you force miktex to rebuild the formats then either they should report several languages being loaded, or give some error message.

I use texlive but get

Babel <3.17> and hyphenation patterns for 84 language(s) loaded.
  • Thanks for your help, this was exactly the source of the problem. I started to type my LaTeX projects on Linux recently and apparently Miktex does not work very well on it. I had to switch to the texlive and now everything runs smoothly. – Maciej Wasilewski Mar 2 '18 at 13:31
