I am using the report class and the appendix package, and I'd like to have an un-numbered chapter called Appendices, where every appendix is a section named Appendix X under said chapter. The numbering ought to be robust in the table of contents, too: the prefix numbering of each appendix should be \Alph. The way appendix is defined, each appendix is a chapter, which seems a little overkill.

I'm not sure if an MWE even applies here.

\documentclass[a4paper]{report}
\usepackage[toc,title]{appendix}

\begin{appendices}
    \section{First appdx}
    \section{Second appdx}
\end{appendices}

I don't think the appendix package provides the machinery you need. Fortunately, it's not difficult to provide the needed setup instructions -- specifically, \addcontentsline, \setcounter, and \renewcommand\thesection directives -- yourself.

enter image description here

\documentclass[a4paper]{report}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\chapter{First chapter}
\section{Introduction}
\section{Conclusion}

\chapter{Second chapter}
\section{Introduction}
\section{Conclusion}

\chapter*{Appendices}
%% provide three setup instructions:
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Appendices} % write to the toc file
\setcounter{section}{0}
\renewcommand\thesection{\Alph{section}}

\section{First appendix}
\section{Second appendix}
\end{document}

    Much obliged: I think this is also simpler and fits the flow of the rest of the content better than the appendix package. – SRSR333 Oct 10 '20 at 15:24
