I am trying to install
M-x package-install RET auctex.
Unfortunately after a brief splash of
Contacting host: elpa.gnu.org:443,
I end up with the message
On a different machine, this seems to work fine - I don't know where this is going wrong.
The top part of my
init.el file currently reads:
(require 'package) (let* ((no-ssl (and (memq system-type '(windows-nt ms-dos)) (not (gnutls-available-p)))) (proto (if no-ssl "http" "https"))) (when no-ssl (warn "\ Your version of Emacs does not support SSL connections, which is unsafe because it allows man-in-the-middle attacks. There are two things you can do about this warning: 1. Install an Emacs version that does support SSL and be safe. 2. Remove this warning from your init file so you won't see it again.")) (add-to-list 'package-archives (cons "melpa-stable" (concat proto "://stable.melpa.org/packages/")) t) (when (< emacs-major-version 24) ;; For important compatibility libraries like cl-lib (add-to-list 'package-archives (cons "gnu" (concat proto "://elpa.gnu.org/packages/"))))) (package-initialize)
Any ideas as to what I should try? This is Emacs 26.2 btw.
