Is pdflatex even at that specified location?

Subject: Re: How can I install MikTex on CentOS 7?
Greetings. I have a work computer with Centos 7 installed. On the 'downloads' section (https://miktex.org/download), Miktex is not available for installation on Centos 7. Though I tried to use the commands given for Centos 8, the installation is not happening. I am aware of tex-live as an alternative but I am well acquainted with Miktex for long-time. I have even installed tex-live along with TexStudio. When I click 'Build & view', I get the following error message:
Could not start Build & View:PdfLaTeX:
"/home/madhavan/anaconda2/bin/pdflatex" -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode
Look forward to your response.
Thanks and regards,

You'd be more likely to get a suitable response from the
MikTeX support site but my advice would be to follow
the suggested instructions for CentOS8. After all, the
miktex.repo file has
as the baseurl so I doubt there's anything CentOS8-specific.
