This question already has an answer here:

After the update today I get the error message: File `tikz.sty' not found. There must be a problem with the latest version of MiKTeX 2.9.

    See github.com/MiKTeX/miktex-packaging/issues/80. The MikTeX developer knows about this and the issue should be fixed in tomorrow's update. If you can't wait that long you have to get pgf.tds.zip from CTAN and install that. – moewe Jan 7 at 14:18

    Please search for duplicate questions before posting a new one (we had this question three times in the last 2 hours). Also please report package or distribution errors always directly to the developer over its support contact channel (website, forum, whatever they have for this). Stackexchange is not a bug tracker. – Martin Scharrer Jan 7 at 14:42
