For several months I want to know after an old update the reason because the MikTeX console doesn't give me the possibility to choose the server where to download the packages both in user and administrator mode: to see Install from: a random package repository on the internet. Clicking on Connection Settings, as I have always done, I find the window below - use a proxy server.

Why does this happen?

Addendum the sequence of the screenshots:

The connection settings button is the wrong one. In my miktex there is a "next" button:

If it is missing for you this looks like a bug. Check for updates (in user mode and admin mode) and if this doesn't help open an issue in the miktex issue tracker.

As a work around you can try to click on the small arrow here:

In the drop dow menu there should be at least one fix repository:

  • Hiii, excuse me if I disturb you. But, peraphs, six months ago I have not the NEXT BUTTON below. :-( See the sequences.

  • As I wrote: Check for updates, and if this persists make a bug report. Only the miktex maintainer can help you: github.com/MiKTeX/miktex Sep 14, 2020 at 16:08
