[Tex/LaTex] Cannot install package in tlmgr


sudo tlmgr install shading
tlmgr: package repository http://ctan.mirrors.hoobly.com/systems/texlive/tlnet (verified)
tlmgr install: package shading not present in repository.
tlmgr: action install returned an error; continuing.
tlmgr: An error has occurred. See above messages. Exiting.

So is there anything I can do so I could install the shading package (https://www.ctan.org/pkg/shading) using tlmgr?

The shading package does not form part of the TeX Live distribution, so you can't use tlmgr to install/update it. You'll have to

  1. download it manually;
  2. unZIP it;
  3. store it in a location where TeX can find it; and
  4. run texhash to add shading.sty to your TeX search directory.
