I was trying to draw a switching circuit using circuitikz package. But I got an error that circuitikz.sty file is missing. Then I tried to update MiKTeX Console having an idea how to install packages from here. Following this, I received another error that 'A connection to ims.jit.ac.in could not be established. More info: miktex.org/kb/fix-couldnt-connect'. Then I uninstalled the MiKTeX (version most probably 2.9) and reinstalled the newest (version 20.12). Now I am getting the error : File `amsthm.sty' not found. \usepackage.

Everytime I go for an update, whether it's miktex update or any package update, I get 'SSL connect error' and the copy error button gives me:

Note: I am also not able to check update for the new MiKTeX version.

    Seems the repo you are trying to connect to is down (currently ims.jit.ac.in/repo/tex-archive shows that it is unavailable). Try changing the repository/mirror to a different site tex.stackexchange.com/questions/56783/… Apr 27, 2021 at 2:57
  • @WillieWong I changed the package source by setting a proxy. Since ims.jit.ac.in was not working, i chose mirrors.sustech.edu.cn from China. Will it cause any legal issue?

  • IANAL, but all repositories listed at miktex.org/pkg/repositories should be publicly available. Apr 27, 2021 at 13:12
  • @WillieWong after choosing the above proxy, when I set back to random package repository on the internet, again the error message is popping up which means that the problem is not solved completely. Would you like to suggest something for that?

  • This appears to be the same as tex.stackexchange.com/q/594597 which has a workable answer. May 23, 2021 at 22:12
