Usually I install packages from MiKTeX package manager. There was no issue before, whenever I opened MiKTeX console, it always asked me whether to switch administrator mode or user mode. But today when I opened the MiKTeX console, it said "A MiKTeX setup issue has been detected" like this.

I tried to check for updates but error has occurred. Then I tried to install a random package but the dialog box said "The remote package repository is corrupted. You have to choose another repository". link image description here.

How to fix this? Thanks.

    You can select the package repository from MiKTeX Settings (click on the change… button for that).

    I get the setup issue warning every time I start the console, even if I update packages and immediately run it again. Sep 13, 2020 at 16:08
  • @JohnKormylo I also have the same problem. And I add that I can not select not even the repository where I want to download the packages.
