I am using a MiKTeX distribution for LaTeX. I tried to check for updates to download nicematrix v6.4. However, the update is not really visible (i.e., even tough I have v6.3, MiKTeX console does not recognize that v6.4 is available). I tried to download the contents of the package in a zip file then run nicematrix.dtx with XeLaTeX, but I get the following message

Runaway argument? {293574 ! File ended while scanning use of \pgfsyspdfmark. \par l.104 \begin{document} ?

Running any of the previous files which use nicematrix environment still works well.

    miktex doesn't update every day but the update will come. Can't you simply wait until it provides version 6.4? Nov 25 '21 at 22:49

    6.4 is only dated a couple of days ago, it relies on unpaid human activity to copy it from ctan into miktex and texlive distribution sources and then a day or so to reach all mirrors. It is hardly surprising you do not see it yet Nov 25 '21 at 22:50

    @UlrikeFischer I am just a normal user of LaTeX. I do not really get to know a lot of details as to how packages are updated in CTAN Nov 25 '21 at 22:54
  • well as normal user: simply check for updates and don't get nervous. It can take 1-3 weeks for miktex after a package reached ctan. Your nicematrix update came today. Nov 26 '21 at 9:23
