Messages: Process started: pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "Quickstart Article 1".tex

Sorry, but pdflatex.exe did not succeed. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again: C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9\miktex\log\pdflatex.log

Process exited with error(s) I have saved pdflatex log - see below:

    Welcome to TeX SX! As I understand it, the system try to install the nag package, and can't do it because you installed MiKTeX for a single user. Try to install it with MiKTeX console, then recompile. – Bernard Jan 26 at 23:39
  • I tried installing MikTex for anyone using my computer (i.e.,not a single user). But now I get a different error from the MiKTeX Setup Wizard: – purplehatdaisy Jan 28 at 22:05
