I tried installing a package automatically from the MiKTeX console, but it keeps showing this error message

a connection to mirrors.hit.edu.cn could not be established

What is the solution to this problem as manual installation is hectic?

If it is not working because of strict corporate firewall policy, etc., but you can download manually the package archive file from a mirror (usually packagename.tar.lzma, and they could be found on the next path on mirrors: /ctan/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/), you can do the next (manual package installation):

  1. Unpack the package archive somewhere. usually there is a texmf directory in it with one or more of the next subdirectories: doc, source, tex, tpm.
  2. Copy these subdirectories to your systems MikTex installations proper subdirectory. The proper subdirectory where you can find the aforementioned 4 subdirectories. It can be texmfs\install\, but this maybe varies from system to system.
  3. In order to refresh MikteX's file database you have to issue the next command in the command line: initexmf --update-fndb.
