After updating all the packages in my MiKTeX 2.9 installation (the last update was 03/2018), the compilation of a document that apparently uses the
tools package does not work anymore.
The mpm reinstalls the already installed package, then a fatal error occurs (excerpt from pdflatex.log):
2018-07-05 14:00:55,106+0200 FATAL pdflatex - The installed file does not exist.

The respective folder is not empty and contains 41 files (which I am not gonna list). I have tried removing the tools package and reinstalling it myself to no avail.
I write and compile my documents in TeXstudio 2.12.8 using latexmk as my default compiler with the following command:
latexmk.exe -r latexmkrc -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode -shell-escape -pdf -pdflatex="pdflatex %%O %%S" %
This has been working fine up until the update.
What can I do?
PS: I fear, this might be the wrong place to ask this kind of question. If so, please advise me as to where I should turn to and I will remove the question myself.
