After installing a fresh copy of MikTex downloaded only moments ago, I agreed to install updates at the end of setup. The console app appeared in the taskbar, found 99 updates, and installed them. Then I re-launched the console, switched to Admin mode, and checked for updates one more time. Got this:
ERROR DETAILS Program: miktex-console_admin Source: Libraries\MiKTeX\PackageManager\CurlWebSession.cpp:247 Error: SSL connect error Details: code: 35 url: https://ctan.mirror.globo.tech/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/miktex-zzdb3-2.9.tar.lzma
Why should the update fail right after a successful one?
