I'm trying to install the koma-script package using MiKTeX console, but the error occurred in the middle of installing. Why does it happen? I attached the screenshot and copy the error info below here.

    The warning in the middle says "1: it has been a long time since updates were checked". You should resolve this first. Check for updates in console in user and admin mode. You should also regularly update (in the task menu) the package database (also for user and admin). Packages are sometimes changed and if your local database no longer fits to the online state you can get curious errors. Commented Jul 27, 2020 at 8:42
  • sorry normally miktex is installed in multiuser mode, but you seen to have a single user installation. In that case look for updates simply as user. Commented Jul 27, 2020 at 9:26
  • okay, but the issue still persist but with less warning. @UlrikeFischer Warning: the following problems were detected: 1: installation is not up-to-date

It looks like there's some problem on the repository

I resolved the problem by include proxy when updating and change the source repository to japan HTTP. You can find free proxy here
