# Mik$\rm \TeX$ Update (2)

## Background

I need to write something in $\rm \LaTeX$.

## Problem

I can’t get any update by clicking “Update Mik$\rm \TeX$” in the icon triggered by miktex-portable.cmd. I faced the same problem as rantrave’s.

## Discussion

If one urgently needs to get the updated version of a particular package, one may directly download the LZMA file.1 Actually, the remote package repositories are still online. I guess the problem is in Mik$\rm \TeX$ update tool. Anyways, I am still grateful for the effort of its developers.

## Resolution

The easiest way is to sit there and wait for a day. Then the problem will be gone. It is possible that some difficulties occur, but they can be overcome.

From Mik$\rm \LaTeX$ Update, I know that only the “Update Mik$\rm \TeX$” in the menu triggered by clicking the small icon will work. The update wizard inside the big window for the package manager won’t.

Sometimes, the chosen remote package repository can fail. In this case, just click the button and search for another one.

## Lessons learnt

When there’s nothing can be done, then one needs the mind of non-action or non-being.
