For some reason, I am unable to install helm. My configuration is:

(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives
             '("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/"))
(package-initialize)
(package-refresh-contents)

When installing helm, I get the message:

package-install-from-archive: http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/helm-20181110.1615.tar: Not found

I am able to install other packages from MELPA, e.g. ac-helm.

Not sure if related, but Emacs asks me to select encoding when doing (package-refresh-contents).

Based on the reply, I tried using http://melpa.org/packages/ instead with the same result.

Interestingly, the version at melpa.org/#/ that I see in the browser is 20181112.1139, but the package manager keeps showing the one from two days earlier...

The repo URL got updated quite a while back. Try using "http://melpa.org/packages/" instead of "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/".

  • Still the same error. Interestingly, the version at melpa.org/#/ is 20181112.1139, but the package manager keeps showing the one from two days earlier... – AlwaysLearning Nov 13 '18 at 13:41
  • Any change with package-refresh-contents or restarting emacs? – ebpa Nov 13 '18 at 14:01
  • No, nothing. I opened an issue github.com/melpa/melpa/issues/5809, but not sure that I chose the right place. – AlwaysLearning Nov 13 '18 at 14:07
