I'm trying to add several plots to a report using
pgfplots and I got an error about "TeX capacity exceeded". I saw this solution, but when I tried to enact it, I got a different error related to missing MiKTeX updates. I'd opened up a question here earlier on the subject, but I screwed something up in the mean time and, long story short, ended up having to reinstall MiKTeX altogether.
When I try to update the LaTeX format files, as it says in the previous link, I get the error in my question and a message saying "The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again". The aforementioned log file contains the following:

I changed my name to "XXXXX XXXXX" for privacy and because it does contain a space. It also contains an accented character, in case that's relevant.
Can anyone shed some light on why this is happening?
