[Tex/LaTex] MikTeX update error


Update of my MikTeX portable on Win 7 failed this morning (Dec 24th, 2016). The error message is given below. Prior to that a lot of packages have been removed, obviously some critical ones among them as well. My offline DB was syncronized. Was my update too early or what might be the cause?enter image description here

Analyzing mpm logs and miktex sources gives a hint that MiKTeX Update Manager incorrectly handles a situation when no proxy is set. So I entered the proxy (Connections Settings... button) (I used uk11.frigate.org), after which the update process worked.
