MiKTeX Package Repositories https://miktex.org/pkg/repositories
I can connect to none of these, with or without VPN.
Tried to uninstall and reinstall on fresh Windows 10 systems too.
Never thought I would have a problem installing/using MiKTeX in China!!!!!!
But the fact is, it's been THREE days and I can only install MiKTeX and couldn't UPDATE anything....
