I've tried using package-mode, and also the temporary install method (eval-buffer including (package-install 'flycheck), and I keep getting this message.

Your package archive index appears to be outdated. Please run M-x package-refresh-contents and try again.

Besides please note that Flycheck only supports GNU Emacs. Use with Aquamacs at your own risk.

  • Nice! Thanks -- I thought I had updated the index, but apparently not. So far it seems to work ok with Aquamacs.
