I have the same problem as described by adam.baker in this post:

\includepdf only shows first page, despite having multiple pages.

(This seems to be not limited to pdfpages, because graphicx with

\includegraphics[page=2]{external} also shows ONLY page 1.)

I have inserted my log file as answer in the original post.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • You are using which LaTeX compiler: pdflatex, lualatex, xelatex? Try \usepackage{mwe} ... \includegraphics[page=2]{example-image-a4-numbered} and check if it works with that to make sure it is not your external file which is the problem. – Martin Scharrer Feb 7 '19 at 13:42
  • Your system is not up-to-date. Run the miktex console update as user to update the packages in your user tree. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 7 '19 at 13:52
  • @MartinScharrer: please refer to original post - the "external file" has been compiled as described there. Log shows compiler used (pdflatex). I tried your hints as well; shows only page one (black "1" on red ground). Both for \includepdf and \includegraphics. – Martin Brennecke Feb 7 '19 at 15:50
  • @UlrikeFischer: thought so too - but MikTeX Console shows no updates available (both for user and admin). This is exactly as described in original post. – Martin Brennecke Feb 7 '19 at 16:01

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the issue was due to a malfunctioning TeX distribution, solved by doing appropriate maintenance. – egreg Feb 7 '19 at 16:51

@UlrikeFischer: thank you very much indeed for pointing out the incorrect paths! I was able to resolve the problem with the "cleanup" entry of MikTeX Console. Just clicked "Reset personal MikTeX configuration" (it took a while for the operation to complete). After that it worked like a charm.

Thanks again a lot!
