I use TeXstudio on Windows.

I tried to use some symbols from the wasysym package and it wrote to me "'wasysym.sty' not found". So I decided to install this package.

The problem is that when I go to MiKTeX Console and go to 'packages', it says

Sorry, but something went wrong.

and the details of this error are:

A MiKTeX configuration file could not be loaded.

file="C:\Users\yuraw\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex/config\package-manifests.ini", line="219387", error="invalid value definition"`

I have no idea how to fix it.

I know another option of how to install it. I go to the extracted folder of what I have downloaded from CTAN and write in cmd latex wasysym.ins. But when I copy the .sty file to TeXstudio, it writes errors:

Font U/wasy/m/n/14.4=wasy10 at 14.4pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.

Font U/wasy/b/n/6=wasy6 at 6.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.

Font U/wasy/m/n/8=nullfont not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.

And lots of other errors.

Can anybody help me, how to install packages on TeXstudio?

  • Welcome to TeX SX! Did you update recently? – Bernard Oct 5 at 16:20
  • Unfortunately when I click in miktex console on "check for updates" I see error: file="C:\Users\yuraw\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex/config\package-manifests.ini", line="219387", error="invalid value definition", so I don't know why I can't udpate. I installed miktex month ago. – Yura Holubeu Oct 5 at 16:25
  • At this line, I have sourceSize=613205. But maybe it is correct onlyfor my own installation (I have a system wide installation). In MiKTeX console, can you click on the menu Tasks -> Update package database? – Bernard Oct 5 at 17:22
  • in Tasks -> Update package database I have file="C:\Users\yuraw\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex/config\package-manifests.ini", line="219387", error="invalid value definition". Maybe if you know any outher solution to install package I will be grateful to hear them. – Yura Holubeu Oct 5 at 17:26
  • And what is the value definition at this line? – Bernard Oct 5 at 17:30
