Is there a problem with MikTeX or the oberdiek package?

I'm running pdflatex, which never finishes, and this is the end of the miktex-pdftex.log:

    See tex.stackexchange.com/a/521303/134574. kvdefinekeys and a bunch other packages were removed from oberdiek (for maintainability). If you update your packages (in both admin and user mode), then MiKTeX should sort everything out Commented Feb 12, 2020 at 0:01
  • You should update package database from MoKTeX console and ask to install missing packages on the fly.

  • As always with MikTeX issues: Update your system in Admin and User mode. Then go to the Console and select "Tasks > Update package database" again in Admin and User mode. Then try to recompile your document. Ideally the on-the-fly package install window pops up and will ask your permission to install the stand-alone packages (which were split from Oberdiek as explained above)

  • This is a known MiKTeX limitation documented here: github.com/MiKTeX/miktex/issues/436 Commented Feb 12, 2020 at 14:07
