It goes from installing to that. And it stays for hours. I've also tried to select a folder in order to be able to install the package from there but it says the folder is not a local package repository folder, even though it is.
Insteresting enough I found out I have 2 miktex folder:
I had selected miktex 2.9n folder and it gave that error. I do remember naming a new miktex as 2.9n when installing it again (but I had removed all previous files during instalation, not sure what happened.) Is it a conflict ?
I was also trying to install a package called "glossaries" and never it left the "extracing file from .tar.lmza" part (I recall it was like that for hours). When I stopped miktex after a while the package was shown as installed but it never worked on texstudio (as missing)
