• What TeX distribution do you use? – David Purton Nov 16 '18 at 3:55
• I use TeXstudio in Windows 10. – Samuel Diaz Nov 16 '18 at 3:57
• @David Purton When the package is installed from MiKTeX as administrator, the following message appears "The server is currently unavailable (because it is overloaded or down for maintenance). Generally, this is a temporary state. The MiKTeX project page(miktex.org) might have more info." then wait. – Samuel Diaz Nov 16 '18 at 4:31
• Indeed. miktex.org seems to be down at present. Try again a bit later. – David Purton Nov 16 '18 at 4:41
• @SamuelDiaz I think that you can download paracol` from CTAN instead (it's not down). – JouleV Nov 16 '18 at 9:09
