I am using emacs on windows 7. Emacs is located on a usb on a university computer with no admin access but correctly loads the .emacs file. In my .emacs file I have

    (("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/")
     ("melpa" . "https://melpa.org/packages/")))))

When I try load package-list I get Failed to download ‘melpa-stable’ archive.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

  • Do you have (package-initialize) in your init-file? – Erik Sjöstrand Jan 30 '17 at 13:15
  • Probably gnutls is missing. See also here and here. – Timm Jan 30 '17 at 20:13
