Latex package not found

Came across this problem the other day. Usually my version
of Miktex automatically locates a package from the
repository, download and installs it. This time it did not
work and due to the absence of the required package
my latex code would not compile.

An important check to perform would be to find your
Miktex version. This can be done by checking different
options on your editor or an easy alternative is typing
latex on the command prompt which shows the
miktex version -

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.9 (MiKTeX 2.7)
! End of file on the terminal... why?

If you are using Miktex version 2.4 or before, you will not be able
to download any new packages, as all repositories have been
removed and you need to install a newer version of miktex.

Follow our post on getting Latex running on windows for more info.
