Recently I have updated my MikTeX, and eversince I get strange warnings. Based on this nice example I tried to reduce my file to minimal, but I still get these warnings saying Patching '\begin' or \end failed!'

\setmainfont{Times New Roman}
\newfontfamily\hebrewfont{SBL Hebrew}[Script=Hebrew]

Random text.

What's going on? MikTeX 2.9.7219 portable on Windows 7 64 bit, everything is updated as of yesterday.

  • How can I install the update of this package since I have the same issue? Oct 20, 2019 at 0:50

By updating from version 35.9 to 35.10 the warning disappears and everything works well.

Thank you for the quick patch David Carlisle!
