Yesterday I updated my MikTeX 2.9 packages, and suddenly I couldn't
build package manuals any more, failing with the error
!pdfTeX error: pdflatex.EXE (file ec-inconsolata): Font ec-inconsolata
at 540 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
This is similar to a problem that people had last summer. Here is my
R uses the LaTeX inconsolata package to get some fixed-width fonts for
the help pages. That package
has been going through a lot of changes lately. The problem is that I
updated the system copy of the
packages (using "Maintenance (Admin) | Update (Admin)", but not the
per-user copy (using
"Maintenance | Update"). Since the per-user packages have priority, this
meant I had a mix of
obsolete and current packages visible to pdflatex, and it failed.
Doing both updates seems to have fixed things.
