i've tried to install some new packages, but it failed. Then I tried to update my miktex manually from the console and got this error:

miktex error 503

Wehen i had a look at the www.miktex.org website, there was no notification, that there is a maintanance going on. So i tried o set a repo proxy manually from this list: enter link description here

For me it was: ftp.rrze.uni-erlangen.de with the protocol http, so as port i entered 80. But as i tried to install new packages or update, i got this message:

miktex error 56

Even adding "http://" infront of the url didnt change anything. Then I just downloaded the repos manually from https://mirror.informatik.hs-fulda.de/tex-archive/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/ to a local directory and entered the link in the miktex console. With this, i got this error:

miktex error 4

So am i doing wrong? Its very tedious to download all repos manually.
